FS: iBook/Powerbook combo dvdr cdrw drive

I've got a fresh pull from a great condition iBook 1.33ghz 12", its oem combo optical drive. Great condition. 16 bucks in person in Los angeles, I guess 20 bucks shipped priority mail.

No, it TOTALLY WILL fit into a Tibook. It is actually a faster optical drive (in recording speeds) than the Tibook's combo drives, as I recall.

Hi, it is slot load. However, I have heard rumor that you can actually install it in an ibook G3 and just have it sort of look ugly but work. It's the drive only, obtained to put in a Tibook, btw; no other iBook G4 parts. (may have a 1.33ghz 12" trackpad, now that I think of it, but no hinges.

If you are in LA, cash is best, Paypal nickles and dimes us. Come get it! (In the S Fernando Valley)
