lf the iMac was designed for browsing the Web at home, then the iBook was created to access the lnternet on the go. The original model was a rugged clamshell design with a six-hour Lithium lon battery and a new wireless technology Apple dubbed as AirPort. l still remember the image of Steve Jobs passing an internet-connected iBook through a hula-hoop to demonstrate there were no wires.

10 Discontinued Apple Products We Miss

5: The "Clamshell" iBook

(Debuted: 1999; Discontinued: 2001)
It isn't hyperbole to say that the iBook (and that same year's iMac) line shocked the world by introducing colors to computers, shattering the dominant beige paradigm present at that time. Unfortunately, only five colors were made available (and some crazy designs later), and Apple has yet to repeat the experiment, but we live in hope.

Apple’s first consumer/education notebook shipped in 1999 and broke a lot of new ground. From the durable construction and floppy-drive free design to its fruity iMac inspired styling and, of course, 802.11b (11Mbps) wi-fi networking, the clamshell (a.k.a. toilet seat) iBook was very much different and in many ways better than anything else on the market at the time.

No, the company's run hasn't been perfect: Apple's striking but overpriced G4 cube Power Mac comes to mind, as does the toylike clamshell iBook and the buttonless Shuffle. But apart from a few duds, Steve Jobs and Apple have mostly had a string of hits--and colossal ones, at that.

In an industry that values style and fashion, our young company had barely celebrated its first birthday when I realised its technology already looked out of date. The multicoloured clamshell shape of the iBook had arrived on the scene, utterly transforming the way our industry worked.

Last week, I attended the greatest show on Earth - if you're a computer geek - Macworld Expo. As you may have heard by now, Apple iCEO Steve Jobs introduced the new iBook there, and it was awesome.

It's unfortunate that the minute you walk out the door with your new iBook, you must start thinking of ways to protect it from theft. Let's face it: the iBook, with its rich blue or orange skin, is attractive not only to you but also to those who'd like to make your iBook their own.
