A Vancouver Sun story, Pursuing digital perfection, about picking the best portable, has kind words for Apple’s iBook.
The article singles out the iBook as a great laptop, but also talk about other manufacturers, too. But the piece starts out with Andre Petterson, an artist-photographer, who took his iBook on this trip to Egypt. He transfers the files from his “digital wallet” to his iBook, saves them onto compact discs, then mails the discs back to Canada.
“The iBook was about $2,300 and that’s not so bad considering it does all those things,” Petterson told the Vancouver Sun. “I’ve been with Mac since day one. The art world uses Macs so it’s comfortable for me.”
The article also speaks of the “elegance” of Apple’s AirPort wireless solution. Apple’s portables, both the earlier PowerBooks and the latest iBook announced at Macworld, “offer a lot of value for their price, which starts around $1,800,” the Vancouver Sun added.
