Apple Computer has introduced a laptop version of its iMac machine, called the iBook. Weighing 6.6 pounds, the candy-colored notebook features Mac OS 8.6, a 300-MHz PowerPC G3 processor, a 3.2-GB hard drive, 32 MB of SDRAM that can be expanded to 160 MB, a built-in 56K modem and a 24x-speed CD-ROM drive. The lithium-ion battery runs for six hours between charges.

Another iBook option is the new AirPort, which enables users to set up a local area network anywhere and work wirelessly up to 150 feet from the access point. Set up the AirPort on the hotel room desk, and you can work from the bed.

The basic iBook costs $1,599. Visit the Apple Web site, www.apple.com.
