I'm curious if anyone will actually admit to owning either of these.

Am I the only one that thinks these things are really cool?

If you have one, post up some pics!

For those of you that have no idea what these machines are:

http://www.apple-history.com/?page=g...odel=imac_cdrw
http://www.apple-history.com/?page=g...mily&order=ASC


Didn't Apple have a massive recall to get all these machines back so there was no evidence that they ever made such an ugly machine? Then they beat the heck out of everyone who purchased one just for being a gullible buyer?

That didn't happen? I guess I just thought it should have then.

You guy's are harsh! They look kinda cool in person. Of course that's what I heard from complete strangers!

I have never actually seen either of those. Are these things big collector's items nowadays? I know most people would think they are ugly, but the "flower power" design would surely sell well to women who want a "cute" computer.

Hey, they look nice in person. I wish Apple would put more color back in its lineup. I'd be first in line for a bubblegum pink MacBook, or candy apple red iMac... I suppose we have to rely on 3rd party vendors for these effects nowadays.

Or to hippies who are still living in the 60's.

My university has a computer lab filled with the blue dalmation iMacs. Pretty scary.

I think they're cool too.
I used to really like the OS 9 Flower Power desktop image - shame it is only 1024x768 (same goes for the old 'Bottles' desktop image).

I seem to be the first in this thread to actually own one of these bad boys! Alright... well i don't have a digital camera, and its also back at my folk's place, so i can't really hook you up with photos. That was our family's first new computer, before that it was an LC2, and its still the only computer in our house. I moved out in January though and just got a new imac for my apartment. What a big step, except while this thing has that fancy new processor, it definitely does not have blue spots!

About that though, don't go thinking that my family is totally fruity or something. All they had in stock at this apple retailer were flower power and blue dalmation. My dad REALLY wanted to wait the two weeks for when they'd get the dark blue ones or grey ones... i forgot which colour, but something normal. But we were heading out of town and i wanted to have the thing before school got going.

I never really regretted... it just makes people notice it more when they come over.

The best part though was when i moved out, i took the computer table and my folk's brought up this old elegant, dark wood table from my grandparent's old place. Talk about a contrast!

If I had the money I'd be tracking down a Flower Power iMac.

ya i'm quite proud of mine, happy my folks aren't upgrading or anything.. that'd just be silly, this thing is totally adequate for their web browsing/ word processing purposes. I hope they keep it for a very long time.
It had some hard drive troubles, back in the OS 9 days, had to replace the drive, but that's cool cause then it got a 40 gig instead of the 20 gig. And then another time, it got zapped by lightning through the modem... ouch, that was a rough one, needed a new motherboard or something, 400$ or something.

But now it runs decently smooth on 10.4 with the 576mb of ram its had since we first upgraded to 10.2.

I'll try to find some pics.

Flower Power OS 9 Desktop Pattern

Will Cheyney,
I actually took that original flower power pattern from OS 9 that was 1024x768 and, with the help of Photoshop, turned it into a beautiful 1440x900 (Intel iMac) desktop image! It was done entirely by cloning so there is no resolution loss.

(I just got ahold of my very first iMac Flower Power, and, I must say it's more "realistic" in real life. It has a very clean look, better than I had imagined; and, with it's still-brightly sharp monitor, runs like a charm!)
