Only two hardware companies know where the digital futureis headed: Apple and Sony. Bothbundle movie-making software with their computers and include FireWire (IEEE1394) ports,standard. But the iBook also features a combo DVD/CD-RW drive (available fromApple.comonly), two USB ports, VGA out, 128MB memory, 10GB drive (upgradable to 20GB),12-inch XGAscreen (finally!), five-hour battery, ATI Rage graphics accelerator with 8MB ofSDRAM formillions of colors, plus Ethernet.
Henry Norr’s review for the San Francisco Chronicle, iBook looks less different this time,internal features distinguish Apple’snotebook:
While the curvaceous original iBook inspired comparisons tothings like Barbieaccessories and toilet seats, the new one, with a strictly rectangular designmeasuring11.2 inches wide, 9.1 inches deep and 1.35 inches thick, truly deserves to becalled anotebook — an extra-thick one, anyway.
