"iBook g3/900 is the inability to add internal bluetooth."
Well you can only add internal bluetooth as a build to order option, so you can't add it afterwards on a new g4 ibook either.
"I hear they only have USB 1.1 which I found to be kind of odd"
Why is that odd? When that machine came out, USB 2.0 wasn't out, so how could it have it? Having said that, unless you need to use a USB 2.0 harddrive based device this shouldn't be much of a problem for you.
"Is installing an airport card pretty easy?"
Should be fairly simple, on the G4 you simply pop up the keyboard and then insert into the space provided. Done.
"Does the low-res screen ever bother you?"
Well that ibook has the same resolution as current ibooks and most laptops, so no I'd say it's fine unless you doing video / audio / photoshop work, in which case I'd recommend a higher-res screen (i.e. powerbook 15" - the 14" ibook and 12"powerbook also have 1024x768)
It should be a great portable machine for everyday use...
