“I had promised myself I would not immediately write about Apple Computer’s iBook G4, which bowed last fall and sells for as little as $1,099. I had determined that a week or two must pass before I formed an opinion. What can I say? Rules were made to be broken. My iBook G4 arrived last Thursday and I’m already impressed,” Mark Kellner writes for The Washington Times.
“Performance is rather zippy; startup takes about a minute, but then programs zoom right along. The hard disk size seems more than adequate for a home or home office user. And the $1,499 unit includes an optical drive that’ll play DVD movies and record and play CD-ROMs,” Kellner writes. “I could easily see this computer accompanying someone to a college dorm, or part of a very stylish home office. It’s a good portable, it’s a good home computer, and I’ll have more to say about it after a couple of road trips.”
