The iMac might be called the computer most responsible for restoring Apple's place in the upper echelons of the personal computer business. Its introduction created some controversy in that the units had no built-in floppy drive. Today, Apple's foresight as to the impending demise of the floppy serves as testimony to their ability to look forward and actually drive the industry, rather than just respond to it, or be a me-too, like most of the Windows PC world.

The CRT iMac still has its place in many business or home settings. As an inexpensive portal to the web, or for general use such as word processing and email, it probably has the best bang for the buck of any computer in existence today. Its also a great computer for families... youngsters can enjoy the use of a computer with a multitude of free or inexpensive software without parents worrying that their own systems will become damaged by some of the more, shall we say, active youngsters out there.

With the multitude of colors now available, from Blueberry to Tangerine to Graphite and so on, an iMac can still make a nice fashion statement, especially in the all-white or silver world the Mac has become lately.

Another thing to consider is that there are still millions of these iMacs in use today (including in our own company), so obtaining one for a specific need or use or budget is no different than already having one in use!

With FireWire ports as noted, as well as USB, the CRT iMac is certainly not out of date in the computer world, an amazing feat considering the first Bondi Blue 233 MHz iMac was introduced in 1998.
