After recent work on the Powerbook range, it looks like change ahead for Apple’s iBook, according to AppleInsider.
The new iBooks are expected to be built around a 13-inch widescreen display and come bundled with both Front Row and Apple Remote. Like Apple’s new iMac Core Duo and MacBook Pro computers, they will also feature a built-in iSight video cam and come bundled with the company’s Photo Booth software.
The laptops are likely to retain the look of the current iBook and still feature a single FireWire 400 port plus two USB 2.0 ports. However, the big change will be the use of Intel’s 1.67GHz Core Solo processor. Like the current range, there will be the option of a SuperDrive at additional cost.
Will it be called an iBook or re-branded like the PowerBook? As yet, that’s not clear.
