    Angry iBook G4 with no Airport Extreme??? Huh?
    I bought my iBook through my school late May 2004. I paid a lot (well, what I consider a lot) for it. It was required for my studies. Anyway, I just now found out that my laptop doesn't have Airport installed. This seriously pisses me off. I went to apple.com and it clearly says that the iBook G4 comes with it so how come mine doesn't? I suspect the school ordered them without it. I contacted my IT Department at school and they're willing to get me one but they're going to charge my school account!!! WTF? What action should I take? Also, am I just doing something wrong? I go to to the apple symbol, click on Location, and select Network Prefernces and no sign of an airport.

    *sigh*


    Please, help someone.

    Also, I wanted to write that I found this out now b/c I'm doing Study Aboard and the school here is offering us wireless and their IT girl says I need an Airport.

    You are looking at an almost 2 year gap between the revision of the iBook you have and the current one you see on the Apple site. Two years ago, AirPort was not a standard option on iBooks. You had to specifically order that option at the time you ordered the one you currently own.
