I can't believe someone has bid on it. There's a Question to Seller about the battery life at the bottom!

I posted some questions on this;

"Have you any pictures of inside this iBook? I'd like to see the display area. What margins does it support? Is it compatible with iBic or iPencil? Can I print information simply by tearing away the display area?"

Id love to know the specs on that. Page count, margins, headers etc. Also Is it blue lined paper or grey? Its hard to tell from the pics. Blue must be the entry level machine. Grey must be Pro.

I bet it's got some pretty good handwriting recognition on it. Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Hmmm...bit of fun!

You'd all hate yourself if people buy it for the sake of it and they make even a few quid for an evening at the pub from it, eh?!

Ingenious business idea!

I think I'll buy one.

Now all I need to do is find a good speaker for it.

Nah, the handwriting recognition is an optional extra. The good part is 99% of people out there will already have it, though they may have a different language pack installed.
