iBook firesale moved
Henrico County is on August 9th. The county is liquidating its G3 iBooks for $50, following the completion of a one-on-one initiative that gave 23,000 iBooks to every middle- and high-school student and teacher in the Richmond, Virginia-area school district. The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that one man is "flying from California to buy a $50 laptop, and a story about a group of Germans hopping the pond has circulated for days. In fact, response to Henrico County's $50 Apple iBook sale has been so overwhelming that school officials are moving the Aug. 9 sale to the Richmond International Raceway, which offers more space, parking and security than an earlier-announced site."
