Prosumer.TV, whose slogan is “Only Cool, Well-Designed Products,” has posted a glowing review of the iBook Dual USB.


Only two hardware companies know where the digital future is headed: Apple and Sony. Both bundle movie-making software with their computers and include FireWire (IEEE 1394) ports, standard. But the iBook also features a combo DVD/CD-RW drive (available from Apple.com only), two USB ports, VGA out, 128MB memory, 10GB drive (upgradable to 20GB), 12-inch XGA screen (finally!), five-hour battery, ATI Rage graphics accelerator with 8MB of SDRAM for millions of colors, plus Ethernet.

Henry Norr’s review for the San Francisco Chronicle, iBook looks less different this time, internal features distinguish Apple’s notebook:


While the curvaceous original iBook inspired comparisons to things like Barbie accessories and toilet seats, the new one, with a strictly rectangular design measuring 11.2 inches wide, 9.1 inches deep and 1.35 inches thick, truly deserves to be called a notebook — an extra-thick one, anyway.
