A few days ago, a friend contacted me regarding a “lobang” for getting one of Apple’s new iBooks at a lower-than-educational pricing. Now, ever since Apple bumped up the specs of their 12″ model (to 1.2GHz), included wireless 802.11g capabilities as standard AND slashed the price by US$100, I’ve been very tempted to upgrade from my now-puny (but still productive and problem-free) 2-year old, G3 700MHz, CD-ROM-only model. And most especially because I’ve been planning to show excerpts of DVDs in class for some time now, but have been constrained by the very limited number of DVD players in the school (can you believe there’re only 2 in the entire school??).
So I found myself a buyer online, and today I bade farewell to my G3 iBook.
Only thing now though is that I BTO’d my new iBook G4 to have a larger capacity hard drive, so it won’t be in for at least another week. Which also means that I’m without an iBook for the time being. Aaaargh!
