Hey there fellow Mac fans.. i'm a longtime fan.. short time owner.. i bought my eMac 700 last summer (great machine) , I found this site by freak accident about in December (just typed it in as a joke and I found a GREAT site instead)

I am interested in buying a laptop only to run OS 9. I use only X on my system here, but since I want to take the Mac Tech certification, I would like to know the old Classic. I'm actually just wondering if i can connect a 500Mhz ibook to external monitor, throw in a USB keyboard/mouse, and to keep it shut it, without it sleeping? I want to use it as a desktop/portable computer.

yes you can connect a montiotr in mirror mode to the 500 iBook and all that other stuff
I do not think it would be possible to close it and have it function, I know you should not do that with a TiBook(because it will overheat)
otherwise, you should be fine., I kind of miss Os 9 , but only as a nostalgic feeling, I dont miss all the freezes and crashes and funny extension fiddling.
Still, when it worked , 9.2.2 was pretty nice.
