Actually I don't know much about computers so need some suggestion. I am planning on buying an apple ibook. I searched for it on ebay and found some in good conditions. I don't know hat features to look for. Can someone please help me here? This is the description of the item:

Surf the Web, chat with friends, do homework, play games, even burn DVDs and CDs to create your own video or musical masterpiece. In your favorite café. At 2 a.m. The iBook G4 delivers today's digital lifestyle to your backpack.
With a fast PowerPC G4 processor running at accelerated speeds of 1.2 GHz, built-in wireless networking capability and up to 1.25 GB of memory, the iBook G4 introduces impressive performance and flexible mobility to everyday work and play. It's your go-anywhere digital solution.
Every iBook comes with Mac OS X Tiger, the latest release of the world’s most advanced operating system. Tiger boasts more than 200 new features, including Spotlight, the lightning-fast search tool that lets you find anything on your system as fast as you type, and Dashboard, the home to handy widgets that access timely information such as stock prices or weather. Tiger turns your iBook into a finely tuned instrument that lets you focus on the tasks at hand, whether you’re syncing tunes to your iPod, creating a family photo album with iPhoto or playing the latest 3-D games.
You Can Take It With You
Built-in wireless capability on every iBook G4 means you can work or play anywhere. Enabled with AirPort Extreme technology, the iBook can surf the Web in any Wi-Fi hot spot, from hotels to bookshops. With an AirPort Extreme or AirPort Express Base Station in your room or office, you can get online from the comfort of your couch. The iBook also offers an incredible 6 hours of battery life. Thanks to the energy-saving features built in to the PowerPC processor, the ATI Mobility Radeon 9200 graphics processor and Mac OS X Tiger, the iBook works as long as you do.
As the lightest all-in-one consumer notebook on the market, the 12.1-inch iBook G4 weighs in at a mere 4.9 pounds. Many textbooks weigh more than either one. The iBook G4 is thin, too--a svelte 1.35 inches, to be exact--making this impressive notebook small enough to fit in a backpack and light enough to carry around all day.
You can order your iBook with either a 1.2 GHz or 1.33 GHz PowerPC G4 processor with Velocity Engine and 512K Level 2 Cache. To maximize its speed, Apple engineers pair the G4 processor with a fast 133 MHz system bus and 256 MB of onboard memory to accelerate calculations and make your applications scream. And you'll be glad to hear that you can boost memory capacity to a remarkable 1.25 GB, giving you room to run many applications at once.
All systems come well equipped. Roomy hard drives offer 30 GB of space. With iBook's slot-loading Combo Drives you can watch DVDs, play music CDs, and burn your own data and music CDs.
An Impressive Display
Both iBook models offer brilliant 1,024 x 768 pixel resolution--ideal for doing everything from working on spreadsheets to displaying your movies and digital pictures in millions of colors. What's more, the iBook display scales down beautifully, again with millions of colors, for special games and applications optimized for 800 x 600 or 640 x 480 pixels. And both come powered by an ATI Mobility Radeon 9200 graphics processor with 32 MB of dedicated video memory and AGP 4x support for dazzling 3-D graphics that bring games to life.
Like to carry around a notebook that delivers exceptional power at an affordable price? Then pick up an iBook G4. With a fast PowerPC G4 processor running at speeds of 1.2 GHz, expanded memory capacity, advanced wireless networking capabilities, and the impressive stability provided by Mac OS X, iBook G4 brings truly impressive performance to everyday life.
