iBooks still available on Apple store?

I have seen iBooks still being sold on the Apple store a few months ago to education and student consumers? I can no longer find them on the store. Does anyone know whether or not Apple took them off or where they are hidden?

thanks

They were discontinued last May when the MacBook came in. Apple have probably sold the last of the leftover stock. They won't be building any more.

iBook production has probably been as dead as the dodo bird for a few months now. The only place I've noticed them are on those Apple reseller sites.

I saw them too.

No one knows, really. Are they still on there? A lot of schools use them...

Try the refurb store on Apple:

Refurb Store

They have this:

Refurbished iBook 14-inch 1.42GHz SuperDrive
512MB memory (DDR333 SDRAM)
60GB Ultra ATA hard drive
ATI Mobility Radeon 9550 (32MB DDR video memory)
Built-in AirPort Extreme
Built-in Bluetooth 2.0+EDR
Scrolling Trackpad
Sudden Motion Sensor

For $999, then another $249 for applecare.

But why would you spend that much when you could just get a MB?

I believe we have a winner. Isn't the applecare cheaper for that too?

EDIT: Nevermind, Applecare costs the same.
