The Apple iBook G4 is a rugged laptop, well suited for students and home users who want a small, affordable Mac laptop.
The iBook is cheaper and has a longer battery life than the PowerBook G4 series, but it's also a lot slower and lacks sufficient memory. Save up for a 12-inch PowerBook instead.
Cheaper and more portable, the iBook is a more than worthy alternative to Apple's top-of-the-line PowerBook.
