There is a tendency for designers to understand the use of a product soley in terms of what happens between its being switched on and off. Convinced that carrying the product also defined an important aspect of its use, we developed the flip-up handle and robust polycarbonate shells co-moulded with rubber.

When Apple retired the clamshell iBook model in favor of the new and boxy "snow white" iBook last year, I lamented the loss of a champion. While the new iBook was a half-inch thinner, a pound lighter, a smidge faster, and could run at a higher screen resolution (1024x768) that was more suited to OS X's larger eye candy, it lacked a certain usability.
