[126] Apple iBook G3 (Original,Clamshell)

Apple iBook G3/300 (Original,Clamshell)

Apple iBook G3/300 (Original/Clamshell) The iBook G3/300 (Original/Clamshell), codenamed P1, features a 300 MHz PowerPC 750 (G3) processor, 32 MB or 64 MB of RAM, a 3.2 GB or 6.0 GB hard drive, and 2X AGP ATI Rage Mobility graphics with 4 MB of VRAM packed into a sleek handle-equipped "blueberry" or "tangerine" case with a 12.1" TFT active matrix display (800x600 native resolution).

Following in the footsteps of the iMac models, the iBook was introduced as a low-cost portable Mac for the consumer market -- and likewise lacked Firewire ports, video out, and even a microphone. However, the iBook did herald the introduction of AGP-based graphics on the Mac as well as the innovative new optional "AirPort" wireless networking card. Later to become commonplace, "AirPort" made it possible to connect multiple iBook systems wirelessly to the Internet when paired with an AirPort base station (or other wireless system).

There are two slightly different versions of the iBook G3/300 (Original/Clamshell). The original models introduced on July 21, 1999 shipped with 32 MB of RAM and 3.2 GB hard drives, and on February 21, 2000 -- to correspond with the introduction of the iBook Special Edition -- these models began shipping with 64 MB of RAM and 6.0 GB hard drives.

Apple iBook G3/366 Special Edition (Original,Clamshell)

Apple iBook G3/366 SE (Original/Clamshell) The iBook G3/366 Special Edition (Original/Clamshell), features a 366 MHz PowerPC 750 (G3) processor, 64 MB of RAM, a 6.0 GB hard drive, and 2X AGP ATI Rage Mobility graphics with 4 MB of VRAM packed into a sleek handle-equipped "graphite and ice" case with a 12.1" TFT active matrix display (800x600 native resolution).

Later to become commonplace, "AirPort" made it possible to connect multiple iBook systems wirelessly to the Internet when paired with an AirPort base station (or other wireless system).

The iBook G3/366 Special Edition (Original/Clamshell) is the same as the original iBook with the exception of processor speed, configuration -- although the original iBook models were enhanced to match the same amount of RAM and hard drive storage upon introduction of the "SE" -- and case color. The "Special Edition" model is housed in a "graphite and ice" case geared toward those with more conservative design tastes.

[115] Apple iBook G3 (Dual USB)

Apple iBook G3/500 (Dual USB)

Apple iBook G3/500 (Dual USB - Tr) The iBook G3/500 (Dual USB - Translucent White), features a 500 MHz PowerPC 750cx (G3) processor with a 256k "on chip" level 2 cache, 64 MB or 128 MB of RAM, a 10.0 GB Ultra ATA hard drive, a tray-loading CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, CD-RW, or DVD-ROM/CD-RW "Combo" drive, 2X AGP ATI Rage Mobility 128 graphics with 8 MB of VRAM, and optional AirPort (802.11b) packed into a compact translucent white case with a 12.1" TFT XGA active matrix display (1024x768 native resolution).

The iBook G3/500 (Dual USB - Translucent White) is quite different compared to the iBook models that preceded it. The "Dual USB" model includes two USB ports -- as one would expect given its informal name -- but also is equipped with a faster processor, faster memory, superior graphics, VGA out, an internal microphone, a higher resolution display, stereo speakers, and the option of more capable optical drives. It also uses a substantially smaller and more conservatively clad "translucent white" case compared to the more outlandishly colored cases previously offered.

There are at least four configurations of this model, varying by the amount of pre-installed RAM and optical drive. It was offered with 64 MB of RAM and a CD-ROM drive for US$1299 (M7698LL/A), 128 MB of RAM and a DVD-ROM drive for US$1499 (M7692LL/A), 128 MB of RAM and a CD-RW drive for US$1599 (M7699LL/A), and 128 MB of RAM and a DVD-ROM/CD-RW "Combo" drive -- only by build-to-order direct from Apple -- for US$1799 (M8520LL/A).

[105] Apple iBook G3 (Late 2001)

Apple iBook G3/500 (Late 2001) Translucent White

Apple iBook G3/500 (Late 2001 - Tr) The iBook G3/500 (Late 2001 - Translucent White), features a 500 MHz PowerPC 750cx (G3) processor with a 256k "on chip" level 2 cache, 128 MB of RAM, a 15.0 GB Ultra ATA hard drive, a tray-loading 24X CD-ROM drive, 2X AGP ATI Rage Mobility 128 graphics with 8 MB of VRAM, and optional AirPort (802.11b) packed into a compact translucent white case with a 12.1" TFT XGA active matrix display (1024x768 native resolution).

The iBook G3/500 (Late 2001 - Translucent White) effectively is the same as the iBook G3/500 (Dual USB) that it replaced, but shipped standard with a 15.0 GB hard drive and only a CD-ROM drive. It also shipped with a smaller power adapter. Starting on January 7, 2002 -- to correspond with the introduction of the iBook G3/600 14-Inch (Early 2002 - Translucent White) -- the price was dropped US$100 to US$1199 and the default operating system was switched from MacOS 9 to MacOS X.

[95] Apple iBook G3 (Late 2001)

Apple iBook G3/600 (Late 2001) Translucent White

Apple iBook G3/600 (Late 2001 - Tr) The iBook G3/600 (Late 2001 - Translucent White), features a 600 MHz PowerPC 750cx (G3) processor with a 256k "on chip" level 2 cache, 128 MB of RAM, a 15.0 GB or 20.0 GB Ultra ATA hard drive, a tray-loading DVD-ROM or DVD-ROM/CD-RW "Combo" drive, 2X AGP ATI Rage Mobility 128 graphics with 8 MB of VRAM, and optional AirPort (802.11b) packed into a compact translucent white case with a 12.1" TFT XGA active matrix display (1024x768 native resolution).

The iBook G3/600 (Late 2001 - Translucent White) is quite similar to the iBook G3/500 (Late 2001) released at the same time, but the 600 MHz model offers a faster processor, a faster system bus (100 MHz instead of 66 MHz), superior optical drives, and the option of a larger hard drive.

There were at least two different stock configurations of this model -- one with a 15 GB hard drive and a DVD-ROM drive for US$1499 (M8598LL/A) and another with a 20 GB hard drive and a DVD-ROM/CD-RW "Combo" drive for US$1699 (M8599LL/A).

Starting on January 7, 2002 -- to correspond with the introduction of the iBook G3/600 14-Inch (Early 2002 - Translucent White) -- the configuration with the 15 GB hard drive and DVD-ROM drive was discontinued, and the configuration with the 20 GB hard drive and "Combo" drive had the price reduced to US$1499. The default operating system also was switched from MacOS 9 to MacOS X.

The iBook G3/600 14-Inch (Early 2002 - Translucent White) is quite similar to the "Combo" drive configuration of iBook G3/600 (Late 2001), but the 14-Inch model offers a larger , but same resolution, 14.1 inch display in an appropriately larger case and shipped by default with twice the amount of RAM (256 MB instead of 128 MB), a slightly faster optical drive, and an enhanced battery for longer runtime.

[70] Apple iBook G3 (16 VRAM)

Apple iBook G3/600 (16 VRAM) Translucent White

Apple iBook G3/600 (16 VRAM - Tr) The iBook G3/600 (16 VRAM/Mid-2002 - Translucent White), features a 600 MHz PowerPC 750fx (G3) processor with a 512k "on chip" level 2 cache, 128 MB of RAM, a 20.0 GB Ultra ATA hard drive, a tray-loading 24X CD-ROM drive, 2X AGP ATI Mobility Radeon graphics with 16 MB of VRAM, and optional AirPort (802.11b) packed into a compact translucent white case with a 12.1" TFT XGA active matrix display (1024x768 native resolution).

The iBook G3/600 (16 VRAM/Mid-2002) is quite similar to the iBook G3/600 (Late 2001) that it replaced, but the "16 VRAM" model has 16 MB of video RAM (twice that of its predecessor) -- as one would expect given its informal name -- as well as an improved processor with 512k of on chip level 2 cache (also twice that of its predecessor). However, the "16 VRAM" model shipped with a CD-ROM drive instead of DVD-ROM or a DVD-ROM/CD-RW "Combo" drive.
