The iBook will almost certainly bring a seachange in our perception of computing. For all the analysis and pontificating about the iBook's capabilities, the primary driver of the new laptop's success will be it's unique style and the portability to put that style in the face of the public.

The iBook, however, was not designed for the target audience of this publication. Its garish turquoise or tangerine hues might be a bit much for the typical lawyer. Besides its colorful ways, the iBook is also trapezoidal in shape, with a built-in handle. Its rubberized composite material betrays the fact that it was designed with the rough-and-tumble world of a school kid in mind.

Stevie Jay just whipped it out, and I almost had an accident in my pants when I saw it. I’m talking about the brand spanking new iBook. If you like the Blueberry iMac, you’re going to love this.

What I needed was a machine that could handle word processing, Internet access, and play games on the go. Most of all, I wanted a machine that would compliment my desktop machine. The iBook fit the bill almost perfectly: its price was decent (if a bit high), it had solid construction, and the 300 MHz G3 processor was exactly what I needed for the tasks I had in mind. Its good looks were just icing on the cake!

Still, the important news is that Apple has followed up on its iMac success by again becoming a significant innovator in portable computing. At a time when most of the industry is straining to make cookie-cutter commodity hardware as cheaply as possible, it's a pleasure and a relief to see some creativity in consumer computing.

It was a commercial success. Only six weeks after the unveiling, Apple received more than 140,000 advance orders. The iBook and iMac dramatically helped Apple climb back to fame, doubling Apple's market share at the time to 11.2%. For the fiscal year 1999, Apple reported revenues of $6.1 billion.

The iBook is undoubtedly rugged, functional, powerful and fun, and it may even be beautiful. Having to pay an extra £350 for sufficient RAM and disk space to edit a modest home video hurts a little, though, and the lack of screen space is irritating. But in every other respect, the iBook has come of age.
