    I thought that Apple discontinued the iBook.
    But if you go to the Education store, it's still there.
    Is this a mistake?

    very interesting. Who would buy one though? Not too much of a saving.

    I doubt it. I suspect it's in place to allow some of the iBook-centric schools (and districts) to have their students buy into the loop w/out creating new support overhead for the MacBook.

    Makes sense to me. :)

    I guess that kinda makes sense....
    But for $100 more you could get a MacBook with a way faster processor, iSight, remote, bigger screen and a bigger hard drive. Thats all worth $100 to me.

    So it's probable something similar to what you said.
    I just noticed it today, have they always been there?
