|German Consumer Magazine recommends iBook|
Stiftung Warentest is a independent german consumer organization which runs comprehensive tests on all sorts of products and publishes the results in the monthly magazine "test". The iBook Special edition stacked up very well against its Windows Multimedia notebook competitors - look at the (funny) Google translation. The iBook had the best battery life, and its rock solid construction and multimedia capabilities impressed the examiners. Disadvantages were the lack of a floppy disk drive and the small display.
|Intended as a kind of portable iMac, the two-year-old iBook started life as a bulky, gaudy rubberized clamshell that barely fit into backpacks, with a carry-case plastic handle and choice of colors that critics--yours truly included--derided as "Barbie-like."
