The rumour mill is working at full speed these days with regards to what will be the next move made by Apple Computers. In advance of the Macworld Expo in January 2006 there has been a lot of speculation about what might be unveiled. We at The Brig believe that the â€˜soon to be announcedâ€™ Intel powered iBooks will be offered in the traditional White and also in the now familiar Black. Both Black and White will be available for the new 13.3 inch model and the 12.1 inch model. The basis for this rumour is based on the recent history of releases by Apple, and the huge popularity of the black iPod nanos and videos.
The better sale performance of Black coloured models has been widely observed in the iPod product line and would be expected to be observed in the Intel powered iBook line as well. The Brig expects the Black iBook to preform more strongly in sales upon initial release citing reasons as a “more classic, professional appearance” and “a look that some customers are more comfortable with”.
This story is a Brig Exclusive and promises to develop further.
We will post updates as they become available.
We’ve done up some mockups to see what a black iBook might look like.
