I really like the sleep light. Everyone else's just blink on and off, and they're very mechanical, and this is typical of their design. We wanted to do something that was more animated and fluid - and about life. And this machine is like 'breathing' [the iBook's light pulsates] on and off. Their machines might work, but they just do the very minimum to meet the functional imperative.

Welcome!

The iBook Clamshell was produced by Apple Computers from September 1999 until May 2001 in five colours and several configurations. Because of the distinctive design and relialble hardware components the original iBooks has still a lot of aficionados around the world - i am one of them.

I started this website in 2006 in german - my first language. When i noticed that a lot of people from anglophone counties came for a visit, i added english content - of course with faults and imperfections. Nevertheless you will find here the most comprehensive information concerning the Clamshell iBook  and a whole lot of tips and tricks to keep your iBook up and running.
