You Can Take It with You
Built-in wireless capability on every iBook G4 means you can work or play anywhere. Enabled with AirPort Extreme technology, the iBook can surf the Web in any Wi-Fi hot spot, from hotels to bookshops. With an AirPort Extreme or AirPort Express Base Station in your room or office, you can get online from the comfort of your couch. The iBook also offers an incredible 6 hours of battery life. Thanks to the energy-saving features built in to the PowerPC processor, the ATI Mobility Radeon 9200 graphics processor and Mac OS X Tiger, the iBook works as long as you do.
As the lightest all-in-one consumer notebook on the market, the 12.1-inch iBook G4 weighs in at a mere 4.9 pounds. The 14.1-inch model weighs just 5.9 pounds. Many textbooks weigh more than either one. The iBook G4 is thin, too--a svelte 1.35 inches, to be exact--making this impressive notebook small enough to fit in a backpack and light enough to carry around all day.
