The iBook is different. It has been designed to be handled roughly, by young people. And even though I'm sure many people would say that mature individuals should be able to handle a sophisticated machine without damaging it, I am positive that the mere idea that one has to be careful is psychologically responsible for the user more or less retreating from the machine.

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.
