Tangerine? Is it the fact that Tangerine is among the least popular choices of color for the iMac, or just the fact that its ugly that Apple chose it to be half the color options for the iBook? Very strange indeed although Steve Jobs' choices have proven fairly on track so far. :-)
While many had hoped the iBook would be priced a little cheaper than US$1600, when you consider the feature set, it is a great price indeed. There are no comparable Wintel laptops with anywhere near the power of a 300 MHz G3 in that price range. The iBook will be a huge success. Not "could" be, "will" be.

Codename P1: bMate, WebMate, eBook, iBook?

David Moody, Apple's director of worldwide desktop product marketing, said during his keynote speech at Macworld Expo Singapore '98: "In the first half of 1999, we will be able to show you something completely new at the portable end of the consumer space" . When Steve Jobs presented the PowerBook Lombard which was part of the professional line in May 1999 he had to put the audience off who was waiting for the new comsumer notebook: "later this year".

P1 was Apple's preliminary name of the portable computer - bMate, WebMate, eBook and iBook were most frequently mentioned names in magazines and websites. Apple Fans around the world speculated about the design which was expected a mixture of the eMate 300, the iMac and the PowerBook Wallstreet.
