Is there much of a difference between the 800MHz iBook and the 1.2GHz one? I'm wondering whether to upgrade. Would it actually be 50% faster? Also, I've got mixed reports on the RAM speeds. Are they actually the same? Could I use a 512Mb card from my 800 in one of the new iBooks?

pretty sure everything is the same except for the processer.

i wouldnt upgrade because the speed wont make a huge difference as the graphics card, ram, hd speeds and everything are still all the same.

i would wait until they do a major upgrade.

Thanks Cfly. I suppose if it ain't broke, don't replace it - or something like that...
