    That was a fun generation of products when they first came out. I still would like a lime green one, just for posterity sake ... but, I have to build the pot of cash for the G5 plunge.

    Um, $800 is only slightly less than buying a modern iBook. I think you are shooting too high.

    Shoot much higher and the informed person could go to the Apple Store...
    Of course there are no refurbed iBooks in stock right now, the older iBooks are still in stock.

    Chances are for the price you're asking, eBay is a better option for you. There may not be as many informed people on eBay as you would find at a Mac rumor and news web site.

    I have a 500 mHz white iBook and wouldn't expect to get $800 for it if I sold it now, even with a cd burner and airport and max RAM.

    Best of luck with your sale!

    Re: ram mhz

    By contrast, take note of this buy it now auction.

    edit: also worth noting, there is more to a snow iBook than just a speed bump - newer case design and enhanced architecture come into play
