14″ 1.33 GHz iBook G4 (Late 2004)

Apple simplified the iBook line in October 2004 with two basic models, a slower 12″ and a faster 14″. Replacing a 1.0 GHz Combo drive model and a 1.2 GHz SuperDrive model introduced just six months earlier, the 14″ 1.33 GHz iBook G4 offers 24% more power than the 1.07 GHz (nominally 1.0 GHz) model at the same price.

14" iBook G4The SuperDrive model is just 11% faster than its 1.2 GHz predecessor, yet the price remains the same.

Improving the value of the iBook, Apple now includes 802.11g AirPort Extreme as a standard feature.
