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.

Announced in October 1999, the iMac DV included a DVD-ROM drive, two FireWire ports (hence DV for Digital Video) and a VGA out. The iMac DV was convection cooled, and so didn't need an internal fan, making it ultra quiet.

A 'Special Edition' iMac DV was available in cool-grey Graphite, with 128MB of RAM, and a 13GB drive.
