iBook Special Edition with FireWire

The iBook Special Edition with FireWire features a 466 MHz PowerPC 750cx G3 processor with a 256k “on-chip” level 2 cache, 64 MB of RAM, a 10.0 GB hard drive, a tray-loading 4X DVD-ROM drive, 2X AGP ATI Rage Mobility graphics with 8 MB of VRAM, and optional AirPort (802.11b) packed into a sleek handle-equipped conservative “graphite” or outlandish “key lime” case with a 12.1″ TFT active matrix display (800×600 native resolution).

The iBook Special Edition with FireWire is similar to the Original iBook Special Edition that it replaced, but the “FireWire” model has a single Firewire port as the informal name implies as well as a faster processor with on-chip level 2 cache, a larger standard hard drive, superior video, and a “lime green” color option as well as “graphite”. It also introduced a new hybrid A/V port that provides composite audio/video out capabilities.

The iBook Special Edition with FireWire also is quite similar to the iBook with FireWire introduced at the same time, but the “Special Edition” has a faster processor, a DVD-ROM drive instead of a CD-ROM drive, and uses a “graphite” case instead of “indigo” (both models were offered in “lime green”).
