REAL old school: question about clamshell ibook

are the keys on the keyboard for the graphite special edition ibook (466mhz) the same color as the rest of the clamshells?

I read that the indigo (not to be confused with blueberry/bondi blue) had a more white/opaque keys, and the other colors (tangerine, lime green, etc) had a translucent keyboard.

I don't know if the graphite is more like the indigo or more like the rest of the ibook clamshell line.

can any of you old timers (like me) help me out?

Here, they ask you to specify the color when ordering, so they must be different. Another site suggests the blueberry/tangerine are different, which jives with what you suggested. On top of that, there's Graphite (SE) and Graphite (White). Perhaps that means the SE has more translucent keys?

I'm sure you could call them with the number at the bottom of the page and find out.

thanks for the info!

so are the keys on the indigo and the graphite the same, or was the indigo whiter than the graphite?

that is very impressive to have owned 3 clamshells.
