    today went to the museum at UNC-G college in one corner of the first floor was a nice and small white emac mac. then went up to the second floor where the art exhibit was via elevator and the security guard floor clerk station had what seemed to be a orginal iMac but looked to be 17" crt screen.
    it was set up on a 3 prong imac matching base. it was definitely bigger than the emac screen downstairs.



    did apple make such a thing or another company with just a dropin the guts of a orginal imac??? for 17" crt screen.

    it just looked like fat orginal blue imac. just odd

    thanks...

    Wow that's what my chemistry teacher has, or used to have, along with a matching powermac, not sure which model. Just shows how outdated my highschool's computers are. But they recently changed to PC, he was soooo mad. He was telling us about it, and when he asked how many people use macs, everyone was like "ewww! macs suck! i hate macs!". I was the only one who rose their hand. I think he likes me now. :cool:

    There's also a 21" version. It even came in blue.
