The 'Book Page

Pismo or Graphite iBook?

Dan Knight - 2000.02.08 - Tip Jar

If you've been to The iMac NewsPage recently, you've seen this image from the Macintosh Users' Group Singapore site. It looks like a black, graphite, and white iBook, although some speculate it is the forthcoming Pismo PowerBook G3.

I haven't a clue if it's legitimate. My guess is this is an iBook photo manipulated in Photoshop by changing the color scheme and dropping in the slot-loading CD or DVD slot from the current iMacs. I don't think Pismo will look this much like an iBook - but Apple is full of surprises these days.

Regardless, it looks stunning. If Apple is to introduce a more professional looking iBook or an iBook Special Edition, I doubt they could make it look any more impressive than this.

Update: After the clamshell iBooks, Apple went with an all-white design until the iBook was discontinued to make way for the MacBook, the first polycarbonate 'Book to ship in black. From the May 2006 through the February 2008 models, Apple offered the polycarbonate MacBook in both black and white; since then, is has only been available in white.
