    I realize this may be a stupid question, but i looked at the apple site and tried searching the forums but to no avail...was just wondering if the iBook's keyboards are fullsized like the powerbooks. Thanks!

    As far as I know, the iBook keyboard is exactly the same size as the powerbooks!

    Yes, it is. There's no option for backlit and IMO the PowerBook keyboards are nicer, but the iBook keyboards are full-size and haven't caused me any problems.

    Full-sized in marketing speak...

    I'm typing this on an iBook. The keyboard from capslock to return is about 3 keycaps smallery than an Apple Extended keyboard. What marketing means is it's not a chicklet keyboard that you saw on some laptops like a decade ago. But it's not the same as desktop keyboard. I've got big hands and if I have to do real typing I plug in a real keyboard. But for the road it's a fine tradeoff.
