  • New Apple Web Site Page Compares New iMac to Original 1998 Model

    Apple on Tuesday launched a new set of iMac computers, 21.5-inch iMacs with 4k displays and refreshed 27-inch iMacs with 5k displays. Alongside them, Apple also released an updated lineup of Mac accessories, including a Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2, and Magic Trackpad 2, all powered by lithium-ion batteries that are charged with a Lightning cable.

    Following up with the release, Apple has published a new page on its Web site entitled "Then and Now," which compares the original 1998 iMac to the latest models. Apple has been creating a trend out of comparing its latest machines and devices to the originals, like they have been doing with the iPhone for the last couple of years, as it drastically inflates numbers and makes the increments appear less marginal than they would be if compared to the previous generation.

The latest iMac, with its impossibly thin enclosure and brilliant display, which together create the most immersive desktop experience there is. See how today’s iMac compares with the original:

    • 14 million more pixels
    • 62,000 times faster graphics
    • 366 times more processing power
    • 1,000 times more RAM
    • 750 times more storage
    • 1 unwavering commitment to create the ultimate desktop computer
    When looking at the evolution of the 1998 iMac when compared to today's model, it's clear Apple is taking its design in the right direction. Moving away from the gaudy transparent plastic enclosure and towards a more professional industrial metal enclosure gives the machine a much higher quality appearance and finished look.

    Apple's latest iMacs continue to be some of the best all-in-one computers money can buy, starting at $1499 for the 21.5-inch model, and $1799 for the 27-inch model.
