The iMac Turns 20

The iMac Turns 20

Exactly 20 years ago today, May 6, 1998, Steve Jobs introduced the world to a new computer called the iMac. The radically different device was powered by a 233 MHz G3 processor. It featured 32 MB RAM, 4 GB of HDD, integrated speakers, and had a 24X CD ROM drive. The iMac ran Apple’s latest and greatest operating system, Mac OS 8.1, and introduced the world to USB peripherals. Needless to say, this bondi blue beauty changed the desktop PC market forever. It’s always fun to look back at how much things have changed in 20 years.
