Longtime Apple chief designer Jonathan Ive is responsible for the unmistakable design of the clamshell iBook. He has built a cleverly integrated carrying handle and airport antenna into the iBook, as well as a durable, lockless locking mechanism that still works reliably even after years of intensive use.
The robust, flapless notebook housing designed for mobile use in schools and colleges consists largely of durable polycarbonate, which is additionally rubberized at the edges. The built-in trackpad and the full-size keyboard allow you to work without tiring thanks to the palm resting area.
The long battery life of up to 6 hours should enable everyday university life without a power connection. The iBook could be put into sleep mode by simply closing it, and the notebook was quickly ready for use again when it was opened.
