    as i am about to look for a ibook i have searched around a bit and the best thing you can do to your iBook is
    installing "screen spanning doctor " , means you can use a second monitor not only to mirror your desktop , but also to extend your desktop to a monitor
    or use clamshell mode (means lid closed )while the ibook is connected to a a Monitor and keyboard and mouse and you can use higher resolutions on the external monitor too by using screen spanning doctor , as apple has limited the resolution on external to 1024x768

    because the iBook offers the same features as the powerbook, but Apple has disabled them in open firmware to boost sales of the more expensive powerbook's and "screen spanning doctor" enables them again

    I find iscroll to be a complete waste of time - it doesn't 'work'. It works, but it doesn't 'work'.

    Over there....
    probably the coolest thing i did with my ibook g3 was paint it black
    btw the first two pics are really bad, i would take more but my ibook died (probably still have the panels somewhere)
