    The iBook, if I am not mistaken, is pretty much all built using ASICs. Pretty much combine most of the functions into just a few chips. There is n such thing as a 'sound card'. Instead there is an output on a chip and then maybe a separate circuit to amplify it.

    Hello

    I have the US-Mac-9.2.2 OS

    I have try the M-Audio Transit usb sound card, I used the M-Audio mac driver but my iBook G3 did freeze.

    I want to use my iBook G3 as a music server with an external DA converter, because that laptop do not heat and seem to last forever.

    Btw, how much years a iBook G3 can last ?

    Thank

    Bye

    If you use a USB sound device it will be digital. Solves that problem.

    A Mac lasts until it doesn't. No way to know. Usually batteries and power cord are the first thing to die. The LCD connection through the hinge is also a weak point in all laptops. No way of predicting when something will fail.
