Apple iMac G3

After a hard decade without Steve Jobs, Apple Computer decided to buy Steve Jobs’ failing company, NeXT Computer, and return Jobs to the company. Jobs quickly made the decision to eliminate the failed Apple Newton line, and released the iMac G3, the first iMac, in 1998. The iMac was a huge success first being released in the original “Bondi Blue” color and later in 4 other colors in the following year. They were known as "the Five Flavors" with an advertising slogan of "Yum". In total, 13 colors and patterns were released for the iMac G3 by the time it was discontinued. The iMac was a big success for the education market, who used the computers in schools to create computer labs. It also played a big role in eliminating outdated technology such as the floppy disk and serial ports. Instead, the computer used CD ROMs and USB connectors. It was eventually replaced by the iMac G4 and eMac and discontinued on March 18, 2003.
