It has a 4X “SuperDrive” for its standard optical drive and a single FireWire “400” port and a new hybrid A/V port that provides composite audio/video out capabilities. The variation of ports and the inclusion of a “high quality” display allowed for Apple to market the iBook as a high end personal device available to the regular consumer.
