I'm very disappointed with the look of the new iBook. I'll probably still get one, but I liked the gumdrop look of the older models. I want a laptop that says "fuck all you matte-black ThinkPad carrying NT-using stuffed shirts. I'm having fun with my computer and I'm still smarter than you."
I think Apple sold out in order to have to greater market appeal to the abovementioned stuffed shirts.
Maybe they'll bring back tangerine. That would be some redemption.
