Teens React To Original iMac 20 Years Later


#1

Oh boy. Fun stuff here.


#2

“Love all the colours on the Apple.”


#3

Oh man, I remember when Lee Lin Chin was reading the story about the new iMac being revealed on SBS News at the time. Can’t believe it was 20 years ago!


#4

LOL the presenter got the year wrong - that’s not the original iMac that was introduced in 1998. Recognised that as a Ruby instantly, which was the 4th/5th (depending if you count the second Bondi original as the second!) release.

I am so old. :joy:


#5

This mouse is so weird… Yep… that’s what we said 20 years ago.


#6

I wouldn’t know how to use System 9 either. But one of them called it ugly as hell! No way! That design looked great then and it looks great now


#7

…I used System 9 in university in the computer labs and to run our student newspaper’s website. I rarely did editing or writing (that would come later), but everyone else was on Power Mac G3s or G4s, I think, running System 9 with versions of Quark Express for layout, iirc.

That was… Oh. Right. 20 years ago. :expressionless:


#8

I remember (as a 3 year old) going to get our Blueberry iMac G3 (250mhz)!


#9

It’s time for you to change your name to Youngmacs, padawan.


#10

I think you mean 350Mhz. :wink:

Where did you buy it? I could have sold it to you - I worked retail at Mac’s Place at the time. :slight_smile:


#11

*350MHZ :stuck_out_tongue: I must have been tired.

At a NextByte :slight_smile:


#12

Ah - the competition! :joy: Hehe.


#13

20 years ago we bought the original Bondi Blue 233mhz G3 iMac.
