Since my iBook is somewhere over the Pacific, I decided I could read some more reviews about it. I already read quite a few. I knew it would be great to do development on, but I began to get greedy wondering if it could play games as well. The answer is yes! A somewhat dated iBook review states that it plays UT and QuakeIII flawlessly (and this is with an 8mb ATI, mine has the 16mb ATI). I can’t seem to find out how fast the CDRW is though. I have seen reports the cdrom on the old ones was about 24x – but I got the DVD-CDRW combo … we’ll see I guess. I have 17 cd’s of data to burn from my workstation before I get rid of it.
