This system has only USB2.0, so a 100mbit ethernet is still faster. I 
also have the original 400mbit firewire, but of course that horse was 
accused of having a broken leg and put down because apple wanted an 
outrageous price per seat.  FWIW, I have a semi-hidef Sony Handicam, and 
KINO and it are 100% compatible.  So generally speaking this aging 
computer has been rock solid stable, and I will run it till the fenders 
rust away and fall off. :)
