    lol. I bought my ibook in 2006.....this year and it has a 1.6gz processor i think. If an ibook of that nature come out, i ahve no idea about it. DONOT buy. Especially if it is not 14inch, cuase the 12 inch of those times had 1.33/1.2gz processor, i'm almost sure of that.

    Actually depends on the cost. Can't tell you how safe a buy it is if i dont have figures.

    There is no 2ghz iBook. There is also no 1.6ghz iBook.

    My Bad....1.42. Out of lazyness, i won't make a search for it. Anyways, it is the last G4 14 inch ibook line that apple made before they started macintels. They addded the two finger scroll stuff and sensored hard drive and so on. Why did i type 1.6???

    Thanks.

    Yeah, 2.0GHz is a blatant lie.

    Hehehehe, yes, so wrong. :eek:

    For fun, the fastest G4 that was put in a Mac notebook was, I think, 1.67 GHz which appeared in the larger Powerbooks. :)
