Is this computer worth fixing. It's a Apple Powerbook G4 Titanium (2004-2005) The list of problems:

1) charger did not work - bought new one
2) one of the usb ports does not work
3) right click does not work
4) screen went into a bunch of colored lines ( but it came back on when I plugged in a monitor)
5) The wireless doesn't work

These are the things I have found so far. I've had the computer for about 2 1/2- 3 weeks.

To be clear, we're talking about one of these, right?

If that's the case then no, it's not worth repairing.

On a re-read, I just noticed this one. Try holding the "Control" key down while clicking the trackpad. :D

Sell it on Craigslist and get something else, the G4s aren't even supported anymore. You can probably get $100 for it just because it's an Apple PowerBook.

Yeah, the mouse only has 1 button.
