Apple’s iBook line got a solid overhaul, as announced by Apple CEO Steve Jobs during his Macworld San Francisco today. Prices have gone down and a new 14-inch “big brother” iBook was introduced.
The new, bigger laptop is just like the current iBook in design — but bigger. It has a 600MHz G3 processor, 20GB hard drive, the CD-RW/DVD combo drive, and the aforementioned expanded screen. It weighs six pounds and is 1.35 inches thick. The price? $1,799. And it’s available today.
Apple is phasing out the mid-range DVD only model and moving the previous high-end model, which sports the combo drive, into its $1,499 price point. And the low-end model, with has a CD drive only, has seen a price reduction to $1,199.
