Story from Reuters:


Apple Computer Inc., the personal computer maker with its own operating system and an eye for style, offers an iBook with its own G3 microprocessor, 128 megabytes of memory and a 30-gigabyte hard drive for $999. While the 12.1-inch screen is on the small side, it weighs a low 4.9 pounds compared to other low-cost notebooks, and can be counted on to draw envious looks from other cafe- or library-goers.

They talk about the screen size as if it's a bad thing, but I am sure that to many buyers, the 12" screen is perfect.

I agree. If I had a laptop, I would prefer the screen to be smaller, so that it would be more portable.

Anyway, pretty good review. I like how they say its eye-catching. ;)

I think any good press for apple in mainstream media is great :)

There's nothing else remotely like the iBook when you take into account its rugged design, versatility and utility.
