Right after introducing iTunes for Windows, Apple has rolled out a new line of iBooks. My very first Mac was an iBook which I loved, except for the performance. Man, was it slow. Back in those days (when OS X first came out and couldn’t even be used to burn a CD yet), the iBooks had a better form-factor than the Powerbooks. Recently, the Powerbooks have undergone a much-needed redesign, however, and are finally the perfect laptops (for Mac users, of course). The new iBooks are attractive, though, if you need something small, light, and relatively inexpensive.
