It seems like all the Apple part numbers end in LL or have LL after the numeric part number...

I found Part of the Answer to my question.
A handful of the newly configured SuperDrive iBooks began showing up in product shipments to several Apple retail stores this week. The units are reportedly labeled with a new configuration model number (M9618LL/A), but a closer inspection reveals that the units were originally manufactured as custom configurations with model numbers such as 'Z0A1'.
So here also, but still want to find out what "LL" means?
If it was purchased online, and you look on the product sticker on the outside of the box is the Part Number an MBxxxxx/A or a Zxxx? If it's a "Z" then the unit is considered CTO/BTO and almost all Apple Retail Stores will typically refer you to call back into Apple to arrange it's replacement (the stores can fix it for you). I'd found out the answer to that immediately.
Introduced in April 2004, the iBook G4 (Early 2004) was essentially a speed-bump of the exiting iBook G4 line. In addition to faster processors, the iBook G4 (Early 2004) models had a larger L2 cache, twice the on-board RAM, and a faster combo drive. The iBook G4 (Early 2004) shipped in 3 configurations: 12.1"/1.0 GHz/256 MB/30 GB/$1,099, 14.1"/1.0 GHz/256 MB/40 GB/$1,299, and 14.1"/1.2 GHz/256 MB/60 GB/$1,499. The DVD-R SuperDrive was available as a BTO option on 14.1" models. Another clue

I still don't think it stands for anything terribly interesting... FWIW my iSight and Apple Wireless Keyboard -- not even Macs -- had the LL too, when I ordered them three years ago. It might be something like identifying the assembly as an Apple product rather than third party or something like that.

I am not talking about the Part number.
It is the Spec label under the keyboard and each thing means something.
Like BT means Bluetooth
and AP means Airport
So the LL at the end stand to reason it stands for a feature and that is what I can not figure out...
I think you are thinking of the LL that is in the Part numbers like a lot of Ibooks have a Part Number starting with a M and there is an LL in there somewhere.
This Ibook BTO - Built To Order has a Z Part Number which was odd to me too but I did find out that was something now explained.
Still want to know what LL stands for in the Specifications

Both my 800mhz G4 iBook and current Unibody have "LL" at the end. Both were off the shelf non-customized models.
I don't think it really means anything...

LL means "Lock and load"
Just kidding... call Apple if it bugs you that much.
Or maybe it has something to do with laptops.

I thought the LL stood for a US model? No...?
