To me, if you're going to run leopard on this, upgrade the ram because it's really SSSSSSSLLLLLOOOOOWWWWWW. If not, downgrade to OS X tiger

TechTV says:

i have a Thinkpad T60 witch is a good alternative to the PPC mac books and unlike the C2D and Core Duo Macbooks, i can upgrade my CPU, my T60 dual boots Ubuntu MATE and Windows XP SP3, i own a T61P witch is a Good alternative to the Macbook Pros i gave my T61P a 60GB SSD replaced the T7700 with a Core 2 Duo T9500 4GB of ram and a Fresh install of Zorin OS 9, i also might be acquiring a R61 with no trackpad but only if the person still has some in stock when it gets to the weekend.

Apple iBook g4 uses an Airport Extreme card, which IS user replaceable. Where can I buy a battery? I have an iBook G4, near perfect condition… however the battery is at the end of its life cycle.

Just some thoughts on your video: I have the iBook G4 from 2004 with 1.2GHz, 1.5GB RAM, 32MB Video RAM. It has no transparent Menu Bar, and no two-finger-scrolling. The Airport Card works well, and yes, it can handle modern Wifi-Networks encrypted using WPA2. Of course it can not handle modern bandwiths, such as 5GHz or so. So I have the dongle on my iBook G3, which strangely cannot handle my WPA(1) encrypted network (while it can handle the WPA or mixed WPA/WPA2 network at my parent's home, it can handle WEP, and unencrypted in my home too – but that is a too weak encryption). Additionally, the software-WPA shipped in 10.3.9 and 10.4.x and above does usa a lot of CPU power. Long story short, I also have the dongle-software on my iBook G3, and you can also Quit the network utility completely rather than just closing the window. Last but not least, you iBook looks like brand new! grats! mine is slightly yellowed, and has some scratches and so. But it still works fine. Oh, and btw, LibreOffice 3 works too, which actually is the same version as in Debian Old Stable. So it might be called "supported" in a widely spread meaning 😉

Review MacTubes please. The stand alone client that runs youtube videos better on G3/G4. (Streams and has built in search query)
