I bought this 12" iBook earlier this year before the new release, I upgraded it to 768MB of memory (stick of 512mb) I also installed Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger on it and it runs great, It comes with all original software and packaging, which includes iLife 05, Apple's OS Restore Discs. It comes preinstalled with Mac OS X Tiger, iLife 05, Microsoft Office, and Adobe Photoshop.

G4 Chip Need performance?
Your 12-inch iBook comes with a 1.2GHz processor with Velocity Engine and 512K Level 2 Cache. To maximize its speed, we pair the G4 processor with a fast 133MHz system bus and 256MB of onboard memory to accelerate calculations and make your applications scream.

ATI Logo Blistering 3D effects
To power iBook’s brilliant display, we’ve included an ATI Radeon 9200 graphics processor with 32MB of dedicated Double Data Rate (DDR) video memory. The Radeon processor offers dazzling 2D, 3D and video performance, a feature you’ll really appreciate when editing footage in iMovie or while playing Unreal Tournament 2004.

Top Shot Space-age construction
The deceptively smooth and well-rounded iBook is surprisingly rugged. It was designed with durability in mind, using ultratough polycarbonate plastic — the same material used in bulletproof glass — with an internal magnesium frame for added strength. The hard disk drive is rubber-mounted for impact resistance. And there are no doors or protruding elements that can accidentally get triggered, break off or snag on clothing.
Mac OS X TigerMac OS X v10.4 Tiger
The iBook G4 comes with Mac OS X v10.4 Tiger, the world’s most advanced operating system. Tiger delivers 200+ new features and improvements, such as the amazing Spotlight search technology and handy Dashboard widgets. Tiger also includes all-new versions of the following system applications:

iLife '05 includediLife ’05: Do More
The iBook comes bundled with Apple’s iLife ‘05, featuring the latest versions of iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie, iDVD and GarageBand. So you can make a movie instantly — just plug in your camcorder and let iMovie do the rest. Download songs and albums from the iTunes Music Store and make your own custom mix CD. Design a coffee-table book using your own photos, or email your favorites to the family. Record a song, then burn it to a CD. iLife ‘05 does all that and more.
