Vectronic's iMac G3/233

The "Rev. A" iMac was introduced on May 6, 1998 and shipped on August 15, 1998. The "Rev. B" iMac was introduced on October 26, 1998. The iMac turned around an ailing company and set Apple toward one of the greatest comebacks in the history of the computer industry. Apple officially christened "bondi blue" the name of the color that highlights the front and back of the computer. "Bondi blue" is said to be named for the color of the water at Bondi Beach, in Sydney, Australia. It can best be described as blue-green. The original iMac has a 233 MHz G3 (PowerPC 750) processor. Max RAM is often disputed (some claim to have been able to install 768 MB of RAM), but officially, the iMac G3/233 Rev. A has a maximum RAM of 128 MB and Rev. B has a maximum RAM of 256 MB.
