I read a first impression of Garageband 2 today over at http://www.macilife.com/ and apparently there is a new feature to 'lock' tracks:

Say you've got your drums the way you like 'em with all the effects etc you want. If you 'lock' that track, it's saved to the harddrive with all the effects processed, meaning they aren't processed in real time, freeing up resources for other tracks.

So I think performance will be better, good news for us iBook users!


As for multi-track recording: You'll obviously need an external device that has multiple inputs, such as the M-box or the tascam Us-122. Whether or not the harddrive in the iBook is up to recording that many tracks at once remains to be seen, but seriously: How often will you be recording 8 tracks at once?
