I bought a Key Lime trade-in almost seven years ago. It hasn't missed a beat since then and has been a great little road warrior. Two Thumbs Up!

(And why, in Vishnu's name, did Apple drop the built-in handle? That was an absolutely brilliant design touch...)

A clamshell iBook 366 was my first Mac purchased new. It was great for it's time, never had a hardware failure and was quite feature-packed. In retrospect, however, I would prefer the slender MacBooks of today to the nearly 2" of bulletproof iBooks of yesteryear, handle or not. I never actually used the handle on my iBook, preferring to carry it around in a traditional case.
I am now telling the computer exactly what it can do.

I bought an iBook from eBay for only $169.00. It has a 20G HD and 256MB of RAM. It works great though(thanks pacific macs!) now I wish I had the money to buy a macbook. I have now become obsested with getting a mac, one with higher specs, probley of eBay, heck I'll get another iBook if I have to, just as long as its' a Mac!

Be sure to find an Intel Mac to fully enjoy it for years.
