Although Apple's consumer portable may be one of the company's most hotly anticipated products ever, the iBook's reality falls short of its media-generated hype.
It's not exactly a case of the emperor having no clothes--the iBook is a natty dresser--but what's under that striking attire leaves something to be desired in terms of size, ease of use, and flexibility.

Clamshell Unboxing Part 2: The contents

The subsequent part of the Clamshell Unboxing series describes the contents of the box. You are on the edge of your seat with anticipation when the assessories box shows up which is placed in a rounded four-columned housing.

The theme on top of the box differs between the editions.


The 300Mhz iBooks in Tangerine and Blueberry and the Graphite iBook Special Edition without Firewire (Feb.2000) came with the assessories Box with the Tangerine iBook, the Second Edition iBooks (366 and 466Mhz) in redefined Graphite, Key Lime and Indigo had three little iBooks on top.

If you turn the box you will notice that the sides and the back of the first edition is grey with a bigger white apple.

When you remove the box, the iBook which still rests in beautiful designed Styrofoam shows up. There is an additinal package with desiccants fixed to the box.
For the photo, the transparent plastic cover of the iBook has been removed in advance.

The next photo shows the plastic wrap with the seal concerning the software licence.
The system software is pre-installed, so it has to be there.
