well, it was really only a couple years past mosaic being the defacto standard browser. Really it was only a few years earlier and most websites were text only ;) Frames man.. that was hot stuff ;D

Well back in the day, that was the standard "good" looking sites, especially in 1997 when internet started to become more standard. But really a big jump in style from 1997 to 1999 as the development in web design evolved.

I would give anything for it to be 1998 again, just so I could be around when the clamshell iBook was cutting edge.

I love that darn thing.

Now I need to find one and purchase it.

I blame this on you, Grey Duck.

Haha... I just made the connection. :o You agree with me though... it is that :)

When you get it post purty pics of it next to a new MB or MBP and compare! Will be cool to see Grandpa/Grandchild in a family portrait.

LOL! Me too!! I would just be starting college without any responsibility. :) Well, I guess since I'm back in college full time it's kinda the same, but being a grad student is a whole different can of worms! That, and I'm almost done again with a job prospect! :(

Heh, I actually checked out the Apple website through the Wayback Machine sometime last week, just to see the "new" products.

Man, those were some sweet machines. With sweet prices.

iMac starting at $799
iBook starting at $999
PowerMac G4 - $1599
PowerMac G4 Cube - Also $1599

Though the PowerBook G3 seems a little steep (unless it's the top configuraton) at $2499

I wasn't even in kindergarten in '97 and I didn't really start getting into computers until about fourth, and Macs about sixth, so me neither lol.

If you want to see something really scary, check out the original websites for the White House!

I do miss the sub-$2000 low-end towers. Not a lot of power, but they had room to grow.

I love old websites. I love the old iMacs even more though! Those things were super groovy. :)

Anything that moved on it's own on a webpage was cool in 1998. :)
