My guess is that you do have to open the bottom to add more RAM but I wouldn't know, I've never worked that much with an ibook. I do want one though, I've seen them go for pretty cheap and they're actually pretty nice looking and the specs aren't too bad for what I would use it for.

BTW congrats on the purchase!

If it's the same as a pc, you should have to remove a screw that holds on a removable panel that exposes the ram slots.
