Thanks for all the tips guys. She's pretty much all ready to pull the trigger on the iBook now.
Not only that, but she picked up my 4G iPod in my car the other day and quickly decided that it was "the coolest thing [she'd] ever seen." So she's gonna take advantage of the iPod rebate too.
One last question. Remember the old Gateway I told y'all about? It's running Windows 98 (yeah I know...be nice). It has ethernet, so I was thinking that there was a way to transfer some of her old files from that thing to her new iBook. Can it be done or is Windows 98 just too old? Thanks again guys
