    Hey, Just wondering how many people on here are rocking iBooks still and using them for day to day tasks or more :D

    Just post some photos of your setup and the specs

    Here's mine, the photos for when I got it on eBay.

    Its a G3 with a 800mhz CPU and 640mb of ram with a 30gb Hard Drive loaded with Tiger and a Combo cdr-w/ DVD drive.

    I sold this a while ago but it was running Ubuntu beautifully with 64mb of RAM :eek::eek: I picked it up for $40 on Craigslist, and it had an AirPort card in it! 466mhz graphite FireWire model. I wish I still had it.

    My iBook G4 is my main Mac, and it runs Tiger beautifully. :) I wish I'd never have to replace it, because I love it so much.

    Full specs:
    12" TFT display
    1.33 GHz G4 processor
    1.5 GB RAM
    40 GB HDD
    Mac OS X Tiger 10.4.11

    I also have a blueberry Clamshell and a white iBook G3, but I'm too lazy to take pictures of them. I love the clamshell for it's design, such a great computer. :) The white G3 was my first Mac laptop, and today it's kind of a backup Mac. :D

    I have both! I always carry my 12" iBook G3 500MHz 640 MB RAM 15 GB HD. Great free wi-fi anywhere machine! My 14" iBook G4 1.42GHz 1.5GHz RAM 40GB HD stays at home and is used a lot! I love both equally! Here's my fire breathing G3 specs!

    Great idea for a thread. My original tangerine is 10 years old and still going strong. I replaced the HD with an 80GB, upgraded the RAM to 544MB, and it's running OS X 10.3.9 and OS 9.2.2. It does just fine for wireless internet and some light Photoshop work as my portable computer.

    I almost bought an iBook just before the MacBook came out but decided I didn't really need it. I ended up waiting a while and got a 2.0GHz C2D Black MacBook (rev.2) instead. I upgraded it to the newest aluminum 2.4GHz MacBook in October.

    The iBook was nice... but it didn't have enough power. That and I have this expensive habit of selling and upgrading everyone 1.5 years or so. So even if I did get the iBook I wouldn't have it anymore.

    I use my snow iBook G3 daily! I do all of my schoolwork on it. It runs very smooth, for only 128 mb of RAM:eek:! OSX 10.2 Jaguar. I like that it can dual boot OS9 and OSX. I don't really have a "setup" of it at the moment because it travels a lot with me. Maybe I'll get around to taking a picture of it. :):apple:

    Ahh, one of my two favorite clamshell colors. Tangerine and lime. Both very vibrant. :D

    She's just having a little mid-life crisis at the moment. A scary one (you should see what else she was doing). It's unrelated to the display, so I'm going to send her away for some therapy/exorcism at Apple, and that'll straighten her out soon enough.

    Here's my tired old toilet seat iBook. Sound quit working, the backlight is dim, and the CD drive is picky about the discs it chooses to read, and the battery won't work anymore. Still use it all the time, and I couldn't ever see myself getting rid of it. I'll use it till it dies. I got the whole "glowing logo" thing going on too!

    I know the thread is "current" setup, but looking through it I couldn't help but remember my first (and only) iBook so here it is. 500MHz first new design iBook.
