iMac

An Apple computer intended for home, school, and small offices, and promoted by Apple as an easy-to-use, stylish computer that outperforms other low-cost options. The computer comes equipped with a 500, 600 or 700MHz G3 processor, 32 MB SDRAM, 4GB hard disk drive, a 56K modem, and a Universal Serial Bus (USB ), which allows a user to add devices without restarting the computer. The iMac does not come with a floppy disk drive, which has raised concerns with some critics and users. Easily recognizable for its translucent colored casing, the computer sold quickly after its introduction in August 1998.
