hello all i just picked up an iBook G4 800 and i cannot believe how long this battery lasts good God! i just ditched my TiBook 550, whose battery life was 13-1/2 minutes or so it felt..... and now this! i honestly cannot get over this! is anyone else out there surprised/overwhelmed with the loooooooooong battery life of the new iBooks? o yeah-- i was so taken by the battery life that i completely forget to make mention of the 'extreme' performance/reception of the airport extreme card.... make no mistake, the reception is exponentially better. i had too many instances where my TiBook just couldn't cut it reception wise. i am certain your wife will be pleased....AND you may find yourself "upgrading" from the TiBook to the iBook.... boy, that sounds wierd. aside from the screen 15.2 to 12... which i don't mind... in fact i think this little guy has a brighter image than my old Ti 550, everything else is a push or improvement.... por exemplo, 20GB drive to 30 GB... "AirPort Sometimes" to AirPort Extreme... Combo to Combo... 550 to 800MHz... 1 firewire to 1 firewire... 2 USB 1.0 to 2 USB 2.0... a faster bus and a better graphics card.... all in all, a nice upgrade for $0. i hocked the TiBook on eBay for the price of the new iBook.
