Decided to get them myself
Oh, dear Lord I'm tempted to bid on these, but something in the back of my head is telling me I have absolutely no need for more iBooks.
It is very tempting.
EDIT: I bit the bullet. I'm gonna bid.
As tempting as this may be, I am going to pass
One, because I'd have to explain to my wife the addition of four more Macs to the too many she thinks I have already and two, because I have somehow managed to collect two iBook G4's already and one broken iBook G4, despite a proclaimed indifference to iBooks, and having already gotten rid of three iBook G3s!
yeah. I ended up placing a bid on them for the sheer fact that I can spread them around to my family.. one of my sisters has always wanted a mac and she doesn't much aside from Microsoft word and web browsing.
I found myself bidding on a final generation iBook yesterday and luckily was outbid as I really did not need one. I would have had to find more RAM and a new battery for it so costs would have mounted more than it was really worth to me. I used to have one from new but remembered that it had a very, very dim screen compared with my Powerbook. That probably helped to give it an above average battery life.
I am still looking for a Pismo (great keyboard, at least my Wallsteet did have) as a general purpose word processor and a 1Ghz TiBook so that I have a decent notebook that can boot into OS9 natively.
Wow, the bid ended at 102 USD + $25 Shipping. That's quite a bit more than what I expected it to reach!
yeah my $10 bid was beat very handily lol
