Introduced in 1999, produced through May of 2001, this iBook Clamshell proves more durable than I imagined. It would take a telephone line and modem to connect it with the internet (what part of it could be handled) and the built in mouse has given up the ghost, but it still runs. This particular iBook was last used in 2011, but was retired when the hard drive started to groan with exhaustion at the end of an 8 hour summer course.
Final note: I have taken far newer failed computers to be recycled within the last few weeks.
A couple things I didn't film:
|Remember the built in carrying handle? This was back before it was|
decided all laptops should be carried in cases, I guess.
Imagine banging this against a railing as you went past.
|How about this colorful little ring that turned|
orange when the battery was charging and
green when it was complete?
