Ok, some cons then :)

 - They are fairly bulky compared to today notebooks
 - The firewire chip in there stinks
 - The G3 is not that fast, especially if you get the 400Mhz model,
don't expect playing DVDs especially since nobody yet has reverse
engineered the HW decoder stuff in the ATI chip
 - The r128 mobility chips isn't a race horse

Appart from these, it's a good machine, very reliable and quite solid.
Just a bit "old" nowadays ...
