Manufacturer's product description

Open the iBook and you're on the road to a whole new digital world of photos, music, movies, the Internet, and more. Slip it in your bag, then organize, edit, and email photographs on the go. Rip, mix, and burn music CDs anywhere. Make vacation movies while you're still on vacation. Manage your finances on the porch. Starting at just 4.9 pounds, iBook will be your favorite traveling companion, ready to perform all your digital tasks, anytime, anywhere. With iBook, you've got the muscle to get your work done. Speed through every project thanks to its PowerPC G3 processor. Store your photos, spreadsheets, and multimedia presentations on its generous hard drive. Experience lightning-fast gaming with the ATI Mobility Radeon graphics accelerator. Transfer large files in seconds using the built-in FireWire port. Work up to 6 hours on a single battery charge. iBook gives you world-class performance housed in a thin, stunning design. With iBook, Internet access is a breeze; simple setup software gets you online in minutes. Use the built-in 56K modem or fast Ethernet connection to join a computer network, then exchange documents or play games, across campus or around the world. With the optional AirPort Card and AirPort Base Station, you can surf the Web without wires, free to roam with your iBook from bedroom to backyard. And AirPort is built on the 802.11b industry standard, so you can connect to the Web wirelessly from any of the hotels, airline terminals, and even coffee houses that have 802.11b networks. At the core of iBook is Mac OS X, Apple's easy-to-use and extraordinarily stable operating system that was designed with portable computers in mind. Put iBook to sleep and with Instant On, it wakes up in seconds, so you can get back to work immediately. Plug in a camcorder, camera, or printer; Mac OS X recognizes most devices, so they're ready to go. Want to surf the Internet? Mac OS X automatically knows whether you're connecting from home, school, or the office. With its power, portability, and remarkable applications, iBook creates a new class of notebook computers.
