Computers.com heeft een review van de Apple iBook op het net gekieperd. Dit blueberry doosje bestaat uit een 300MHz G3 processor met 32Meg RAM en een 12,1" LCD scherm:
The system's 12.1-inch, active-matrix screen is bright and easy on the eyes. The iBook's 4MB ATI Rage Mobility chip can crank out a maximum 800-by-600-pixel resolution, which will limit the iBook's appeal to graphic artists, even though it supports 24-bit color depth. But this is more than enough color for Web browsing and other general applications.
The iBook that we received didn't come with Apple's hot, new wireless network connection, the AirPort, which is available for an extra $99. But the instructions for installing it were included in the manual, and a helpful diagram was even printed under the keyboard. The keyboard lifts out very easily via two small, retractable tabs that give users easy access to what looks like a very simple upgrade.
The iBook comes with a solid software bundle that should get the average college student or home user off to a good start. AppleWorks 5.03, Apple's integrated software package, is the main application, and it includes word processing, spreadsheet, drawing, and painting programs. PalmPilot users will be glad to find Palm Desktop loaded on the hard drive, as well. And Web surfers will appreciate that Apple has preinstalled both Microsoft's Internet Explorer and Netscape's Communicator.
