At A Glance

An incremental update to the 14-inch iBook G4 line, this model offers a faster processor.

The July 2005 update to the Apple's iBook line boosted the processor speed in the 14.1-inch model to 1.42GHz. All iBooks now feature the scrolling Trackpad and Sudden Motion Sensor technologies added to the PowerBook line earlier this year. Memory has been boosted across the iBook line as well.
