Guys, The Apple iBook G3/G4 is the Most Beautiful laptop to Date.
This thing will haunt you at night with its Beauty.

It’s the Beautiful Contrast between the White Shell and the Blue Wallpaper. Kind of like Windows-10 or 11.
Another reason to build a computer with a White case.
It’s just Stunningly Simple and Beautiful.

I upgrade my iBooks with IBM 7200rmp Hard drives for Better performance.
Makes a BIG improvement in performance.
However these are a little more difficult to upgrade than most laptops. Typical Apple.

Here I have it setup with iSight cameras.
These laptops have good speakers and display too.
They play games pretty good too.

Here I have it Next to an 13-inch 2012 MacBook Pro.
The iBook is just more pleasing to the eyes.
These photos don’t do it justice.

I've gotta disagree. The most beautiful laptop ever is the TI Travelmate 3000.

I had a white polycarb Intel MacBook that looked like this. Great looking machine but oh boy did its innards not age well, it ran red hot with even moderate usage. (Wasn't there a model at some point that would literally melt its keys?)

Afaik Thinkpads have this whole ecosystem of third party replacement and upgrade parts (higher res displays and entire mainboards) behind them - I'd love something like that for Macs too.

Most beautiful laptop is a black Thinkpad with a red trackpoint, you can choose anyone from 1992 to present models.

Totally agreeing! Take a look at my ThinkPad A22p.
1600x1200 and a Rage 128, what a beast.

It also runs well with a Radeon 9250 in its docking station:

This laptop is built pretty solid.
It’s been sitting in my garage for over two years and it still looks and works like New.
Plays games great.
