UK or USA price.

UK i would not pay more than £400. for it as on the UK market you can  
get a G4 POwerbook for only around £50-70 more.

The ibooks are nice though and hold their price. My daughter uses one  
for her school work at the moment, as her desktop mac is dead until i  
can afford to fix it.

hers is a G3 600 12" with 640 ram 60gb hdd dvd/cdrw airport and it  
does her fine for her music and chatting to her friends she is also  
(14)going on 24 and a pain.
