This was the model that everyone was talking about. Should you buy the Pismo, or the SE 466 MHz Clamshell iBook? That was ‘the’ question during the time. While some knew that the Pismo simply had more to offer (i.e. 14.1″ 1024 x 768 screen), others were not as convinced.

The integrated handle

A new and unique feature of the Clamshell iBook was the seamlessly integrated handle which is invisible at first sight.

Steve Jobs demonstrated this feature during the presentation of the iBook at the Macworld conference and Expo in New York on Jul 21 in 1999. The designer Jonathan Ive wanted to facilitate the process of carrying the iBook, e.g. in University from one lecture hall to the other.
