for an iBook Deal...
I think your website is
great, i especially liked when i could go up and find the
best deals on the ibook with the ibook Price Tracker. But
lately the past few times i have been trying to get on
that site, it says that it is: Not Found
"The requested URL
/ibooktracker.shtml was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered
while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the
request. Apache/1.3.4 Server at ibookcentral.com Port
This has happened to me
a few times over about 2 months and now that I am going
back to school this fall and i really need an ibook. I
will come back as often as I can, because i really need
that ibook, and it really did make it easy.
checked it out and this is the new correct URL:
you may want to check stores to see if there are any
iBook's that have been returned I got mine from Sears it
was returned so I got 10% off and I got their credit card
and got another 10% off $1250, not bad eh?
could also get a used or refurbished one. There are some
rumors that there may be a new DVD iBook coming out in
Sept. but nobody knows 100% for sure.
I use Windows on an iBook ?
If I buy an iBook can I
still put Microsoft Office on it because that is the
program I learned how to use, and can I put Microsoft
Windows on it? Or am I limited to Apple
to both of your questions, but first, your not too
limited there are currently over 18,000 programs for the
Mac check out the Macintosh
Secondly, Microsoft makes "Microsoft Office 98" for the
Mac and they just announced at MacWorld Expo in New York,
"Mac Office 2001" which I beleive will be shipping this
also makes Word Special Edition for the iMac & iBook
is also a way to use Windows on your Mac too. A company
makes a program called Virtual PC, you can get it with or
without Windows. Virtual PC also allows you to run many
ather operating systems too, you can get it with DOS, 95,
98, 2000 and if your interested Red Hat
Amanda, some of Microsoft's Macintosh programs like
Internet Explorer and Office have some great features NOT
found on the Windows side.
Try it you'll like it !
by PC's, I want my iBook at work...
My new job as admin. asst is for an
all PC (IBM)/Windows 95/98?/Netscape/Microsoft
Explorer/Microsoft Exchange/Microsoft Schedule+ and i
can't stand having my iBook at home while using the
dreaded beige PC!!
The "computer people" are down the
hall, what do i need to tell them i need in order to
bring my iBook to the office, somehow secure it to my
desk/etc./etc. and still be able to do everything i
currently do on the huge clunck of a machine on my work
station? i'd appreciate any help on this!
One Product that may help is Virtual PC by
it lets you
run Windows on your Mac. You also may want to check out

far as security goes, Noble
is a manufacturer of computer locks and makes one
iBook I saw it at MacWorld it looks very
iBook/Powerbook CABLE LOCK -
COMPONENTS: Retail Package including: 1-Slot Cable
Lock, 1-iBook Adaptor and 2 keys.
UPC CODE: 61910990035
Compatibility: Protects against theft on Notebooks,

handle for protection !
iBook sleeve fits like a glove ! ...
I had the fortune to be
the first person to order the CoZo
Sleeve for my Blueberry iBook (2000) and couldn't be
happier. It slips on with a little effort and forms a
snug form around the iBook. Its a great deal for the
money. I use a Kensington Saddlebag which is a great
product also. The Sleeve will give a little added
protection to my iBook when its in the 'bag'. For those
times I want to carry it by itself, I expect the Sleeve
will give the protection needed from the bumps or scrapes
that do happen.
All in all I'm very
pleased with the product.
great and the price at $25 is excellent too ! I use the
(sleeve) all the time.!
Thanks to all for
writing, Keep sending those email's in !
