PPC iBooks, or Intel iBooks? I suspect the former are rather limited in choices compared to the latter. You can check Low End Macs, but they don't seem to say much about Linux on iBooks.
(Traditionally, linux support for laptops is only so-so, especially when it comes to things like power management...)
