Announced in July 1999 at Macworld New York, the iBook was perhaps the most anxiously awaited Apple computer ever. Aimed at the same consumer market as its big brother, the iMac, the iBook filled the 2x2 consumer/pro/desktop/portable matrix that Steve Jobs had first detailed more than a year earlier.

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.
