    the middle of nowhere ... well, close enough
    That's great - I still got to convince my bros to trade in their PCs for Macs.

    Congrats! That is a good price. I had an iBook for about a year and I loved it. You will be pleased I am sure.

    Great Deal....I hope you enjoy.

    Just a heads up for anyone buying a refurbished model: They do tend to have a few marks or blemishes, usually nothing major. And they are not shipped in the original packaging. They are great vaulues just keep in mind your not getting a "brand new" system.

    I am just saying that the PB is better looking, for the price the iBook is better.

    I bought that model around February 10th. It was a 1.2 ghz iBook with Combo drive for 849. I was really excited to come, but the shipping date kept getting delayed. This was really hard for me because I am a student and need a computer to type up my papers on. Finally, I just went to an apple store about 25 miles away and bought an open-box version for 50 dollars more because I was desparate. Not to burst your bubble, but don't expect the iBook to come on the day they estimate. It's a great computer by the way, I love mine but I didn't love Apple's customer service.

    what?! The 12"PB or the iBook? Either way, where can you access the Refurbs MicroCenter offers? I believe they had a PB 12" 1Ghz for $900 at one point, but I could only find it with a direct link from dealmac. :confused:

    That's like saying ... The Civic is a great little car, I found them to be very nice but in my honest opinion the Accord is the better modle. Thanks for pointing out the obvious:)
