There can never have been a personal computer, not even the iMac, which has been designed from start to finish with such attention to detail. Everything from the design of the packaging to the smooth curves of the bullet-proof clamshell case makes you want to pick it up, hold it, examine it and play with it.

iBook Clamshell defects: Part 1 - The handle

The integrated handle was a popular feature that was very useful. But after years of use nearly every handle is covered with stress cracking. The handle is made from Serlin (a special plastic substance) moulded over a magnesium core. At least, the handle will not break but it will look unattractive. If you plan to buy a used iBook, pay attention for the condition of the handle because immaculate spare parts are hard to find.
