iMac G3 (1998 to 2002)

The iMac G3 is a line of personal computers developed, manufactured, and released by Apple Inc. Noted for the innovative use of translucent and brightly-colored plastics in its design, the iMac G3 was originally introduced as simply the iMac. However, upon the introduction of the iMac G4, it was retroactively renamed and has become the first iteration in a range of all-in-one computers collectively known as the iMac. The first consumer-facing Apple product to debut under the recently returned interim CEO Steve Jobs, the iMac G3, among other factors, was responsible for Apple's turnaround from financial ruin during the late nineties and revitalized the Apple brand as design-oriented and simple. It was, nevertheless, criticized for abandoning then-current technological standards like the ADB connector in favor of the emerging USB standard. (via Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IMac_G3)
