About the computational power of g4 machines


I have the opportunity to buy an iBook G4 800MHz so that i can continue
working with Debian + PowerPC.

I have two questions, which I list below.

Is one machine of these able to play the videos listed below?


If anybody could test it under other clocks (say, using the different
governors/frequency scaling), it would be very informative.

Another question: is a Radeon 7500 mobility with 32MB of VRAM able to
use compiz and similars?

I depend on the questions above to get myself an used ppc box so that I
can use it in, say, Debconf 9 (let me cross my fingers).
