Apple Computer Inc. touts the iBook, its new consumer-class Macintosh notebook computer, as an "iMac to go." It certainly looks the part: Its clamshell case sports colored panels in either a bright peacock blue ("blueberry") or an incandescent orange ("tangerine"). The computer has interesting curves and angles that make it resemble an experimental hypersonic airfoil.
