애플 컴퓨터 변천기 1977년 ~ 2007년 Innovation

 

애플은 초기부터 모니터와 본체가 일체형으로 되어 있는 제품을 내어놓았다. 나 역시 대학친구의 Apple III를 1980년도 초에 보고서 컴퓨터의 매력에 빠졌다.
그 당시돈으로도 거의 5백만원에 가까웠던 것으로 기억되었던.. 컴퓨터가 이제는 불과 몇십만의 넷북이 나오는 시대이니..

Apple II - 1977

1977 saw the invention of both the Apple II and the famous rainbow Apple logo. Steve Jobs added the colours to the logo to reflect the Apple II’s superior colour output. Colour graphics set the Apple II apart from its rivals on the market. Image: Wikipedia

Apple III - 1980

This next iteration of the Apple computer for business was created primarily to compete with business computing companies like IBM. Image: Wikipedia

Apple IIe - 1983

The Apple IIe keyboard was built in to the computer and did away with the numeric keypad. Image: Wikipedia

Lisa/Macintosh XL - 1983

While Lisa won the legendary race between itself and the Macintosh by being the first desktop computer to market with an intuitive GUI, it flopped with the public due to sticker shock at its $10,000 price tag and a lack of software titles. Image: Wikipedia


Apple IIc - 1984

The Apple IIc represented Apple’s first attempt at both a portable computer and “out-of-the-box” functionality. The only problem with classifying the IIc as a “portable” computer is the fact that it lacked a portable power supply. Image: Wikipedia


Macintosh - 1984

The Macintosh, for most of us, was the computer that started it all. In the first demonstration of the product at MacWorld, Steve Jobs pulled the very first Macintosh out of the bag and demonstrated product features that most of us take for granted now. Image: Wikipedia

Apple IIGS - 1986

The first 50,000 of these came with Steve Wozniak’s signature silkscreened on the front. Image: Wikipedia


Macintosh Plus - 1986

The Plus version of the Macintosh originally featured the same beige colour as the original Macintosh, but in 1987 was changed to the warm gray Platinum colour that would characterize Apple computers for years to come. Image: Wikipedia


Macintosh SE - 1987

Space for an internal hard disk and advanced SCSI support were some of the selling features of the SE. Image: Wikipedia


Apple IIc Plus - 1988

With this model, Apple did away with the 5.25″ floppy in the Apple II line and switched over completely to the 3.5″ floppy. Image: Wikipedia

Macintosh SE/30 - 1989

The SE/30 sported the capacity for expandable RAM and a 1.44mb floppy disk drive as standard. Image: Wikipedia


Macintosh Classic - 1990

The Classic was an adaptation of Terry Oyama’s and Jerry Oyama’s Macintosh 128K industrial design. Image: Wikipedia


Macintosh Classic II - 1991

Two cases actually came out for the Classic II. The pictured one has a speaker cutout on the left side for better sound. Image: Wikipedia

Macintosh Color Classic - 1993

This was the first colour compact Macintosh computer. Image: Wikipedia


Apple Macintosh LC 500 - 1993

The Apple MacIntosh LC series were sold as Apple’s upper low end computers for the mid 1990’s. Image: Wikipedia.

Macintosh Performa 5200 - 1995

This was one of Apple’s lower moments, featuring severely compromised hardware design. Image: Wikipedia

Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh (TAM) - 1997

12,000 of these were produced. Apple broke the moulds and didn’t make any more in order to make the product seem more “exclusive”, a strategy that did not help the TAM’s sales numbers. Image: Wikipedia

PowerMac G3 All-In-One - 1998

These were sold to the educational market only. Image: Wikipedia

iMac G3 Tray-Loading, Bondi Blue - 1998

In doing away with the tower and keeping the computing power, Apple completely revolutionized the desktop computer industry. The iMac G3’s were available in a bouquet of various colours. Johnathan Ive, the designer who was later the mastermind of the Cube, designed the iMac G3. Image: Wikipedia

iMac G3 Slot-Loading Indigo - 1999

The above model set the standard for the rest of the iMac G3’s with a slot-loading CD ROM rather than a tray-loading model. Image: Wikipedia

iMac “Flavours” - 1998-2003

Different colours were eventually added to the original Bondi Blue. Image: Wikipedia

eMac - 2002

The eMac was made available as a cheaper option to the educational market than the iMac. Image: Trimir

iMac G4 - 2002

The iMac G4 was produced from 2000-2004 and represents the first iteration of Apple’s desire to “slim down” the components necessary for an out of the box personal computer experience. It was nicknamed the iLamp because of its swiveling monitor. Image: Marc Burr


iMac G5 - 2005

The G5 lacked the swivel functionality of the G4 but introduced the “behind-the-screen” component design principle which characterized future iMac designs. Image: Wikipedia


iMac (Intel Based) - Aluminum - 2007

The current iMac models pack all of the components necessary to the operation of a computer behind the monitor in a perfect realization of “slim design”. Image: Wikipedia

    안녕하세요. 밸리에서 애플이라는 거 보고 방문하게 됐어요. 애플유저라서 애플의 과거에도 관심이 많아요. 제가 처음으로 알게된 컴도 애플이었어요. 친구 컴이었는데 1986년 모델이었던것 같은데.... 그런데 노트북은 안올리셨네요. 애플관련해서 트랙백을 올릴게요. 트랙백 불편해하시면 말씀해주시고요.

    네. 트랙백 다셔도 상관없습니다.
    노트북과 아이폰이야기는 나중에 올려드리겠습니다.
