Apple iMac turns 20


California: Appleā€™s first-generation iMac computer has turned 20. It was on May 6, 1998, that the Cupertino-based company introduced its first-ever all-in-one desktop, paving way for advanced computing technologies as we know today.

The first iMac was unveiled by the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. It featured a 15-inch CRT screen, a meager 4GB hard drive.
Despite the entry-level specifications, as compared to the computers today, the iMac was responsible for bringing Apple back into the business after years of business blunders, Engadget has reported.

From USD 1,299-priced original iMac to the present-day iMac Pro at USD 4,999, Apple has brought in revolutionary technology at a premium.
