      It worked just fine on a Powerbook 1400 with 8 MB of RAM ;-) Haven't used it much yet on the "new(ish)" Powerbook G3 I got last year but it seems to work in Classic.

      If your friend really needs a *new* laptop, it's rather more complicated getting it running. On the other hand, secondhand Macs work practically forever if they're not abused and fit more easily into a student budget. (Avoid the PB 5300, though: it was a lemon.)
