Old World Computing Presents - It Comes in Colors!

When Henry Ford introduced the Model T he said, "You can have it in any color as long as it's black." The computer industry through the 90s was the same, you can have it in any color as long as it’s beige or sometimes black. Apple bucked the trend in 1998 introducing the iMac with its translucent Bondi blue case and in total released the iMac in 13 unique colors (18 if you count the two variations of the “5 Flavors” models.)

This booth will showcase all 18 colors and variations of the iMac. Some on display and a few to interact with.
