The iBook: For Everyone

by Darren Janisse

Greetings,

The following is based on my personal experience with the iBook. My previous systems include an iMac, 8100, 6100, Performa 5200, LC III, and of course the Mac Classic. Laptops have sure been advancing at an astonishing rate over the last few years. Unfortunately, I've never had owned one.

The iBook is my first portable, ever. I've always been turned off by laptops due to crammed keyboards, dull screens, and the fact that if I ever dropped it, the laptop would be history, and so would my investment.

Down to business. The iBook is awesome, whether it be for a student, business professional, or average home user. I particularly fall into the second category. I work for an internet service provider full-time, and bring the iBook to work everyday. At work, the iBook aids me in keeping my day organized, software development, and the occasional Mac help desk call.

Many features of this brilliant consumer portable intrigue me. To name a few, the eye-stunning design, ruggedness, speed, and overall quality crafted by Apple. Setting up the iBook was a breeze.
Upon first bootup, a graphical setup program guides you through the various parameters to configure the iBook. It's a real treat for first-time computer owners, or even experienced ones!

One note to potential iBook owners -- ordering an extra 64/128MB ram is almost essential. OS 9 eats up a good 25mb on it's own. You'll notice a huge improvement in speed with the extra ram.

Ok, so the question remains: Who is the iBook best suited for?

Anyone who has the aspiration to "Think Different".

 

Thank-you,

Darren Janisse
