Yet the iBook clamshell remains one of my favorite portable Macs. The great battery life, AirPort, rugged feel, and, yep, even the handle are all reasons it still often makes the WiFi coffee house run though I have an iBook G4 and Vostro 1400 sitting in the stable.

Sex and the City: Backup ?

If you have seen "Sex and the City", you have probably noticed that the clamshell iBook sometimes is to seen as a "supporting act". Here a clip taken from Season 4 Episode 8 (or Episode 56 in total) "My Motherboard, My Self". Carrie Bradshaws beloved black PowerBook freezes and all data seems to be lost.

Her boyfriend Aiden surprises her with a new indigo iBook and a zip drive for backups. It has a beautiful handle and looks like a purse ! Carrie is still irritated about the loss of her PowerBook and rejects his presents (later on he gives her back the keys to her appartment, they fall apart). The technician in the Apple Store notifys her that nearly all data was lost and advised her to backup.
