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.

iBook Clamshell defects: Part 2 - The small Apple logo

A small colored Apple logo is integrated in the display bezel. The first models in tangerine, blueberry and graphite show very often tension cracks around this logo, the firewire Clamshell iBooks seldom. Immaculate translucent bezels are hard to find. You may buy a display bezel with a different color and switch the Apple logo which can be popped out in one part backwards. Be sure to buy a translucent or opaque bezel according to your model.
