Depends on what you wanna do and how much you wanna spend.

OR

You could just hold off and wait for the REV B or C MacBook because you'll jus' end up selling your iB for a MB anyways... ;)

That's what happened to me (with a PB)... :D

I want something cheap and reliable.. its going to be used for internet access while travelling, photographs, and updating my ipod.

Get an iBook and save yourself a coupla hundred bucks and the priviledge of being an Apple Rev A tester for free. :)

I'd suggest eBay. I've seen used iB G4's go for $500-$700 lately.

Jus' make sure you ask a lot of questions, and insist on getting one with all the Manuals, Disks, Cords, etc. with at least 512 RAM, and a Airport Extreme card. These usually came with a 30 G HDD, but if you can get one with a bigger HHD, cool!

AND make sure it's a G4 iB, G3 iB's had a lot of Logic Board problems...

Hope this helps!

cheers lads or lass's, will take this advice into consideration.. its a shame there is only 3 apple stores in the uk.. and none near me at all, so i cant go and ask them questions.

i like the i book but if they are gonna release an i book with intel i may wait for a bit
