Hi, I dont know too much about computers but I hope to buy a present for someone. Have a few questions: 1.Is the spec in an iBook (smallest one) high enough to use a burner (or would it take too long?) 2.If its good enough, where can you buy these writers (online-am in ireland). 3. Would software come with it or would i have to buy the toast software (I have seen it is quite expensive). 4. What compression application could be used on the Mac for when files are too big? 5. Would it just be generally too expensive (hundreds of Euro) to get this going? Thank you!
