To look back, 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 all know today.
The first iMac was unveiled by the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs and also featured a 15-inch CRT screen and a meager 4GB hard drive.
In fact, as per the reports by Engadget, despite the entry-level specifications, compared to the computers today, the iMac was responsible for bringing Apple back into the business after years of business blunders. To know more, from $1,299, i.e. ₹87,200, priced original iMac to the present-day iMac Pro at $4,999, i.e. roughly ₹3.35 lakhs, Apple has roped in revolutionary technology at a premium.
