    iBook G3 Clamshell 466 (FireWire & DVD)

    The second-generation iBook Specil Edition adds key lime (below) as an alternative to graphite (above). It replaces the 366 MHz G3 processor with the new G3e running at 466 MHz. The G3e includes an on-chip L2 cache that runs at full CPU speed for improved processor efficiency (the larger backside cache in first generation iBooks ran at half of CPU speed).

    Other big changes include a DVD-ROM drive, FireWire, and video output. Like the original iBook, it has full AirPort support and a battery rated at six hours.

    The iBook Special Edition is the least expensive DVD laptop in Apple's line, and it offers nearly the same speed as the PowerBook G3/500.

    Other than the new colors, the most visible difference between the second-generation iBooks and the first is the colored button by the trackpad on the newer models.

    over ten years old, but its still a great compuer

    The Clamshell iBook may very well be the best looking notebook computer ever made, but for being ten years old it will not leave you waiting at the keys as long as you avoid installing newer software. Most older iBooks will need a new battery and you couldn't go wrong investing in a modest RAM increase. This machine is considerably heavier than the newer notebooks, but hey it does come with a handle! The 3.2GB Hard Drive is a joke considering that you can buy a 32GB+ flash drive or an iPod with 160GB of storage space. The Clamshell G3 iBook is a really cool retro machine that is still useful.

    working machine better than parts only

    Actually works, 128MB RAM, 5.5gb drive and 366mhz CPU. This is more than a parts machine.

    Apple iBook G3 Clamshell

    These adorable clamshell iBooks are just plain fun. They seem to bring out the creativity in the user too.

    If you're looking for a cheap machine to surf the web, look elsewhere. These models aren't really upgradeable enough run today's web browsers, and the older browsers have trouble with the newer pages.

    If you want to write, draw, email, play some older games and have fun in a tough, colorful package, then the G3 Clamshell iBook is for you. If you want to make a statement, this laptop is for you.

    They are also loads of fun to take apart and work on. You can go to ifixit.com and get detailed instructions with photos about how to take your iBook apart and change out various parts.

    Word of warning: get a keyboard protector. Spills happen, and they can trash the logic board in these things in a heartbeat.

    Still rocks ten years later.

    If you surf the net, write papers and stuff like that, this machine still works as well as when it came out a decade ago, if not better. For best results, get a Firewire model with 10.4 Tiger, maxed memory and at least 20 gb hard drive. Don't go crazy installing software and you have a useful and eye catching machine.

    Pour fureter, rédiger et d'autres tâches quotidiennes, cet ordinateur marche aussi bien que lors de sa sortie il y a plus de dix ans, voire mieux. Pour de meilleurs rendements, achetez-vous un modèle Firewire à 10.4 Tiger, le maximium de mémoire et un disque dur d'au moins 20 go. Ne vous acharnez pas à trop de logiciels et vous voilà un appareil utile et attirant.
