lf the iMac was designed for browsing the Web at home, then the iBook was created to access the lnternet on the go. The original model was a rugged clamshell design with a six-hour Lithium lon battery and a new wireless technology Apple dubbed as AirPort. l still remember the image of Steve Jobs passing an internet-connected iBook through a hula-hoop to demonstrate there were no wires.
