    I'm fairly new to macs...I'm actually looking for a cheap Ibook. Anyone know of a good place to find one at?

    It all depends on what you're looking for - new or used. If its new, talk to Chuck at General Cybernetics - they advertise here, you'll see the banners.

    I just checked to see if the apple link worked, and it appears that it doesn't so, go to the apple store, and click on the 'Hot deals' sections. That is where the refurbished and special computer offers are. I wouldn't buy it directly from the apple store though. Too expensive, you can find better deals elsewhere.

    If you can afford to wait until at least late November I would suggest doing so. Then check out some of the previous sites mentioned, or even SmallDog.com

    Once you have your iBook, jack in some memory. Go here for some of the cheapest memory. My Cube has 1GB of memory, upgraded from 128MB, and it performs smooth. My father upgraded his PowerMac at around the same time and didn't experience memory problems.

    Thanks guys......

    That is very helpful....I am waiting until they release an Ibook with a G4 though. The sites though I'll keep in my favorites for when I do need them. I appreciate your guys' suggestions.
