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.

LaCie Firewire speakers

The LaCie Firewire Speakers look pretty good and don't need an AC adapter because they are bus-powered. If you own a firewire Clamshell this might be the right choice. There connecting cable between the two speakers is a lttle bit short..



Compared to its small dimensions you will encouter a powerful sound. The installation is cumbersome: You have to open /utilities/ Audio Midi Setup and choose Lacie Firewire Speakers as default and system output. Then set audio output properties to 44.100 Hz. There seems to be a fatal bug if you're running OSX 10.4 Tiger: while everything seems right under 10.4.6 - after you install the 10.4.11 update the system will crash immediately when the first sound is played.
