The iBook placement is perfect within the movie! She is a "blonde" law student and there are a few scenes where every single other student has the same black laptop (I can't tell what brand) and she has only a paper pad. Then she gets serious about studying, and you see her in line at the Harvard Book store holding the tangerine iBook box. The next scene you see all the other black laptops, and her bright one in the middle. It is a perfect symbol of her willingness to stand out with style and not conform.
Its a great movie, too!
