    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.

    will it fit my ibook g3 12" or my ibook g4 12"? does it have the white faceplate and is it slot load or tray? i'm in the LA area :D

    paypal ok?

    also do you have access to it for parts? i need the hinge off that thanks

    added:
    oh wait i don't think it will fit the g3 and looking at mine, the g4's don't need the faceplate and is slot load

    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)
