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.

The breathing sleep light

The love for the detail shows up with the Clamshell iBook even in small things. Apple chief designer Jonathan Ive (quotation) provided for example the small green light, which signals the current energy saving mode, with gentle pulsating (instead of a mechanical on/off), which fits this sleep mode very beautifully. This detail is today still integrated in each portable Mac.
