All in all, the keynote audience was very pleased with the iBook except for two points: pricing and availability. At $1599, $400 more than the iMac, I think the iBook is reasonably priced for a consumer portable, but more than people had hoped for. TFT displays and six-hour batteries don’t come cheap, after all. I’m sure Apple is just as disappointed as we are that the iBook won’t be available to start the school year, but if they coulda done it, they woulda.

The Barbie iBook

I always wanted to take a photo of the real Barbie iBook.
I like to thank my daughter, who gave me her "French Barbie" from the Collector's Edition, and an original pink Barbie laptop.

Insiders know that the design and color of Clamshell iBooks has caused some mockery stimulated by a comment the PC Magazine columnist Dvorak. Until today some people call the iBook by the nickname "Barbie purse" - which is of course better than "toilet seat"

 


Apple has never dared to release a pink Clamshell. But recently, I have found in an Ebay auction a pink iBook. Someone has dyed the colored parts, but i am in doubt if the pink color on the rubber parts will last long.
