Insanely Great Science

Aug 15 1998 Apple launches the iMac


On August 15, 1998, Apple launched the first iMac into the world, the multi-colored gumdrop-shaped iMac proved to be the perfect launchpad for a revitalised Apple.


The first iMac had fairly modest specs, a 233 - 700MHz PowerPC 750 G3 processor, 128GB of storage, a 15-inch CRT, a CD-ROM drive, and an ATI graphics card. Since then Apple has regularly upgraded the iMac

The latest Pro version boasts up to 18-core 2.3 GHz Intel Xeon W processors (Turbo Boost up to 4.3GHz), 32GB of 2666MHz DDR4 memory (four SO-DIMM slots, user configurable to 128GB), up to 4TB SSD storage 27-inch (diagonal) Retina 5K display and Radeon Pro Vega graphics 64 card with 16GB of high bandwidth memory, and of course it is available in space grey.


Happy 20th birthday.
