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.

Bondi Blue was just the beginning. Announced in January 1999, the next range of iMacs came in five new colours: Blueberry, Strawberry, Lime, Tangerine and Grape.

According to resellers Tangerine was the least favourite of all the colours, closely followed by Lime.

There weren't many other differences apart from a slight speed bump, and removal of both the mysterious 'Mezzanine' slot and the IRDA port.
