Apple iBook G4 (Late 2003)

Apple iBook G4/800 12-Inch (Original)

Apple iBook G4/800 12-Inch (Original - Op) The iBook G4/800 12-Inch (Original - Opaque White), features an 800 MHz PowerPC 7457 (G4) processor with a 256k "on chip" level 2 cache, 256 MB of RAM (PC2100 DDR SDRAM), a 30.0 GB Ultra ATA/100 hard drive, a slot-loading DVD-ROM/CD-RW "Combo" drive, 4X AGP ATI Mobility Radeon 9200 graphics with 32 MB of DDR SDRAM, and optional AirPort Extreme (802.11g) and Bluetooth 1.1 packed into a compact opaque white case with a 12.1" TFT XGA active matrix display (1024x768 native resolution).

The iBook G4 models look similar to the previously released iBook "G3" models, but internally, the computers are very different. The iBook G4 systems use the faster PowerPC "G4" processor -- as one would expect given the name -- but also have a faster motherboard design with a faster system bus, support for faster RAM, faster hard drive support, and faster graphics capabilities. The iBook G4 models also have USB 2.0 ports and support for AirPort Extreme (802.11g) and Bluetooth 1.1 (although neither AirPort Extreme or Bluetooth were pre-installed).

Unlike previous iBook models, no iBook G4 systems are capable of booting MacOS 9. These systems are capable of running MacOS 9 applications in the "Classic Environment" within MacOS X.

Apple iBook G4/933 14-Inch (Original)

Apple iBook G4/933 14-Inch (Original - Op) The iBook G4/933 14-Inch (Original - Opaque White), features a 933 MHz PowerPC 7457 (G4) processor with a 256k "on chip" level 2 cache, 256 MB of RAM (PC2100 DDR SDRAM), a 40.0 GB Ultra ATA/100 hard drive, a slot-loading DVD-ROM/CD-RW "Combo" drive, 4X AGP ATI Mobility Radeon 9200 graphics with 32 MB of DDR SDRAM, and optional AirPort Extreme (802.11g) and Bluetooth 1.1 packed into an opaque white case with a 14.1" TFT XGA active matrix display (1024x768 native resolution).

The iBook G4 models look similar to the previously released iBook "G3" models, but internally, the computers are very different. The iBook G4 systems use the faster PowerPC "G4" processor -- as one would expect given the name -- but also have a faster motherboard design with a faster system bus, support for faster RAM, faster hard drive support, and faster graphics capabilities. The iBook G4 models also have USB 2.0 ports and support for AirPort Extreme (802.11g) and Bluetooth 1.1 (although neither AirPort Extreme or Bluetooth were pre-installed).

The iBook G4/933 14-Inch is similar to the to the iBook G4/800 12-Inch introduced at the same time, but the 14-Inch model offers a larger, but same resolution, 14.1 inch display in an appropriately larger case as well as a faster processor and a larger hard drive (40 GB instead of 30 GB).

Unlike previous iBook models, no iBook G4 systems are capable of booting MacOS 9. These systems are capable of running MacOS 9 applications in the "Classic Environment" within MacOS X.

Apple iBook G4 (Early 2004)

Apple iBook G4/1.0 12-Inch (Early 2004)

Apple iBook G4/1.0 12-Inch (Early 2004 - Op) The iBook G4/1.0 12-Inch (Early 2004 - Opaque White), features a 1.0 GHz PowerPC 7447a (G4) processor with a 512k "on chip" level 2 cache, 256 MB of RAM (PC2100 DDR SDRAM), a 30 GB (4200 RPM) Ultra ATA/100 hard drive, a slot-loading DVD-ROM/CD-RW "Combo" drive, 4X AGP ATI Mobility Radeon 9200 graphics with 32 MB of DDR SDRAM, and optional AirPort Extreme (802.11g) and Bluetooth 1.1 packed into a compact opaque white case with a 12.1" TFT XGA active matrix display (1024x768 native resolution).

The second generation iBook G4 models -- dubbed the "Early 2004" series by Apple -- are quite similar to the first revision, but have faster processors with twice the amount of on chip level 2 cache (512k instead of 256k) as well as twice the amount of onboard RAM (256 MB instead of 128 MB). The 14-Inch iBook G4 "Early 2004" models also could be configured with a DVD-R/CD-RW "SuperDrive".

Apple iBook G4 (Late 2004)

Apple iBook G4/1.2 12-Inch (Late 2004)

Apple iBook G4/1.2 12-Inch (Late 2004 - Op) The iBook G4/1.2 12-Inch (Late 2004 - Opaque White), features a 1.2 GHz PowerPC 7447a (G4) processor with a 512k "on chip" level 2 cache, 256 MB of RAM (PC2100 DDR SDRAM), a 30 GB (4200 RPM) Ultra ATA/100 hard drive, a slot-loading DVD-ROM/CD-RW "Combo" drive, 4X AGP ATI Mobility Radeon 9200 graphics with 32 MB of DDR SDRAM, pre-installed AirPort Extreme (802.11g) and optional Bluetooth 1.1 packed into a compact opaque white case with a 12.1" TFT XGA active matrix display (1024x768 native resolution).

The third generation iBook G4 models -- dubbed the "Late 2004" series by Apple -- are quite similar to the earlier iBook G4 models -- all are the same architecturally -- but some "Late 2004" models are configured with faster processors, larger hard drives, and more capable optical drives. All "Late 2004" models shipped with AirPort Extreme (802.11g) pre-installed.

The iBook G4/1.2 12-Inch (Late 2004) in particular is quite similar to the iBook G4/1.0 12-Inch (Early 2004) that it replaced, but the "Late 2004" model has a faster processor, pre-installed AirPort Extreme (802.11g), and sold for US$100 less (US$999 compared to US$1099). It otherwise effectively is identical.
