Yes, but I think the 500 MHz (the first gen. of the all-white iBooks) are considered exempt from them ... someone correct me if I'm wrong, because I can't remember where I heard this. I think, but don't know, that the problems are more common to the 100 MHz FSB iBooks. The 500 MHz CPU model is still at 66.Rocksaurus said:Don't the G3 iBooks have logic board issues?
Who was the sucker, and how old was he/she? This person probably could have bought a basic 12" iBook 933 G3 for that much money.crazydreaming said:I'm not sure what that is in US dollars, but I just sold one of those back in sept. It was pretty much the same system, only the latch was broke, was the cd + dvd drive, and I didn't have the original box, cd's, and documentation.
It sold for $600 US!
Hi, Thanx for the advice - my baby should be with me before 1pm tomorrow - wish me luck!!!deebster said:You shouldn't need to do anything to it before you erase and install OS X, but you might want to uncheck the "Install OS 9 Drivers" option if you do not plan on booting from OS 9. This does not mean you cannot use classic via OS X though.
And as HD space is at a premium maybe delete as many of the language localization files that you do not use as possible, like Hungarian, Portugese etc etc. Macaroni (shareware with 1 month trial period) is a good app to do this for all installed apps, but others will too, such as DeLocalizer and Monolingual.
Also be harsh when installing OS X - don't let it install 500MB of printer drivers for printers you don't have.
And enjoy your new baby. I've been happily using a G3 600 iBook for 3 years. Runs Panther fine, even if my measly 8MB VRAM doesn't give me Quartz Extreme.
It was a grown man. it was an eBay sale. He was actually quite pleased, but yea, I was suprised. That's what the bid went to. Made the upgrade to G4 iBook quite cheap.Abstract said:Who was the sucker, and how old was he/she? This person probably could have bought a basic 12" iBook 933 G3 for that much money.
Hector, where did you come upon such a thing? Are they available for G4 iBooks? (I guess the plastic is identical or very nearly so.)Hector said:also comes with optional clear case (insert own design with photo paper) or white case.

So, since you mentioned that you have both white and cleared out cases, did you get a second set of case hardware? That's the part I was wondering about -- whether, for instance, there's any way for me to get a second bottom plastic shell (the one closest to ones' lap) somehow, in a way that doesn't cost $200....Hector said:no my ibook dose not have a skin, i removed the white paint from the upper case, it currently has a mac rumors logo on a black backround .
