|iBook Clamshell defects: Part 1 - The handle|
The integrated handle was a popular feature that was very useful. But after years of use nearly every handle is covered with stress cracking. The handle is made from Serlin (a special plastic substance) moulded over a magnesium core. At least, the handle will not break but it will look unattractive. If you plan to buy a used iBook, pay attention for the condition of the handle because immaculate spare parts are hard to find.
