Ahhhh...back when everything was simple and exciting. The colors! The tasty, lickable colors and all the peripherals they inspired from Belkin, MacAlly, Contour, etc.



We were SO happy with slot-loading DVD drives, the new built-in Harman/Kardon speakers, this cool new thing called FireWire and iMovie, etc.



400MHz and 256MB RAM seemed like SO much! And blueberry never looked so good on a muffin as it did on a computer.







And Graphite! Oh, what a beautiful choice for those not into the fruits!



2000 was a very exciting and cool time to be an iMac owner/user.



Such genuine excitement and the sense that the iMac was THE computer to own.



Definitely seems to have died away a bit, hasn't it?







Here's hoping that MWSF (or a special event soon after) returns the iMac to its rightful place as the coolest computer ever made and the proud flagship of our favorite computer company.
