Not sure about the a in a540, but I had a 540 powerbook for several years (just
sold it)  and it was fine. Personally I'd say it depended on the price. It's
quite slow by today's (or even yesterday's) standards.

If you're only doing WP, etc. It's fine. But I wouldn't use it for development
or similar.

I'd say it was worth about $US450, at UK second-hand prices.

Pretty computer though - almost as pretty as the new G3/400 powerbook.
