Even though I plan to install a 512MB module within the next couple months, I thought that $40 was a decent price to keep from having to use OS X with a mere 128MB for those two months. The rest of the package was a good dealfor myself, since the Espon printer's features fitted nicely with what I plan to use it for and hopfully the case will fit my needs as well.
I'd recommend that you carefully weigh Amazon's $100-off offer against other retailers' bundles, since the cash value of the free stuff they offer could end-up costing you less (as was the case with my purchase). If you don't need any of the things that other retailers are bundling with the iBook or the cash value of those items are less than $100, Amazon's deal would probably be the best.

Acutally, the $100 printer thing is from apple direct:
Other places I saw they charged you $40 for a 128mb stick (installation fee) and a bundle of old games (macconnection). I got a 256Mb stick from crucial for $60 and I got a PC for games =)
