I never owned one (wayyyyy too expensive!!!) but when I saw it... Man, it was love at first sight.

The Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh (TAM for short, its code name was Spartacus). If you go to this link and click on the TAM image, you'll see the different prototypes that were created before the final product. This is what it was to unpack one. If I'm not mistaken, it was the last Mac Gil Amelio launched before resigning when Steve Jobs came back to Apple in 1997. Here are the specs.

A close second for me was the Power Mac Cube, a totally hunk-of-wow of a computer.

Oh.. I was slightly confused, it looks nothing like any iMac I've ever seen.

Nope it was a Power Mac. Read the links, you'll see all the info, prototypes, photos and stuff. Pretty cool.

I agree.. The G4 iMac is stellar.. The metal arm alone is something spectacular. However, I think I'll end up owning one just for the sake of having one.

Yeah the iMac G4 was very nice too. That's my previous Mac model, the 17" one. I still have it in case I need to boot into OS 9. Although I haven't done anything in OS 9 in years but I just can't part with that iMac, it's too cute. :girl:
