Happy Birthday, iMac

 Ten years ago this week Apple introduced the product which single-handedly helped the company rebound back into the ascendancy, the iMac.

We thought it worth a repeat of then Apple iCEO Steve Job’s introduction of the new $1299 system, which offered a 233MHz G3 processor, 32MB of memory, a 4GB drive, USB and a CD-ROM drive (and built-in modem). Critics at the time slammed the system’s lack of a floppy drive, but ten years on and the iMac is still here. The floppy drive is not.

Happy birthday, iMac.
