In pictures: 10 years of iMac

Looking back at Apple iMac history

It was 10 years ago – on May 6, 1998 – that Apple unveiled the computer that revolutionised the company and marked the end of the beige box computer forever. Happy 10th birthday, iMac.

August 2004 marked another new design dawn for the iMac. Introduced at Apple Expo Paris the iMac G5 brought more processor power to Apple's consumer desktop line.

The new case was reminiscent of Apple's Cinema Display line, and was only two inches thick.

In October 2005 a new model iMac G5 was the first Mac to include an integrated iSight webcam.

The iMac G5 lost the G5 part of its name when Apple shifted to Intel chips, and another redesign was on the cards.
