Your Apple has a worm in it.

Just kidding. I don't think those (though there are a wide variety of iBook G4s out there) have built-in iSight cameras, so my first thought of it being a light sensor for the camera goes out the window. Does this iBook have a backlit keyboard?

Could you narrow down the possible models that this could be so I can find a picture of it to reference?

You mean this? A little magnetic hook is in there and when the screen is almost all the way shut, it comes down.

Microphone? Don't know. Launch some software that utilizes the internal mic and then (lightly) move your finger over the hole. Do you get loud scratchy noises? Do the meters (if applicable) jump off the charts?

Then that's what it is. If not, no clue. Look for a worm.

Scroll up four posts (from yours), click on the image therein, look to the right of the display, and behold the hole in all its glory.

I'm still guessing microphone. But I've never had an iBook, so all it is is a guess.
