Apple billed its new iBook as an “iMac to go.” These banners were on display on the outer periphery of the Jacob Javits Convention Center.

The Apple iBook was introduced at Macworld New York ’99. Though it didn’t ship in quantity until much later in the year, the iBook was the top-selling mobile personal computer for the last calendar quarter of the ’99.

Apple had several iBook centers like the one pictured above for the Mac faithful to enjoy. There must have been over a thousand iBooks on display.

Pictured above is one of the lines Becky and I waited in to get our hands on Apple’s newest mobile machine. The wait wouldn’t have been so bad if the iBook hadn’t kept some attendees’ attention for so long.
