Yeah, that's pretty cool.

Interesting how you can see three major shifts in the Mac in there. The first Mac, the first desktop tower (Quadra), and the iMac.

That's sweet, really interesting how they changed.

The Macintosh Classic, 1990 I think was my first interact with Apple.

15-16 years later I switched and now currently own two iMac's! LOL

Wow, technology really does move quadratically, the difference between the first 20 years and the last 10 years is astonishing, the design evolves much quicker!

You're actually missing some things. The plastic cinema displays were HD. I suggest naming the ACD (aluminum one) something different, like, "ACD", and naming the see-through one "ADC".

There was actually another LCD display they had prior to the ADC's, one that matched the B&W Yosemite PM.


Peace

According to the Artist page which i posted, he didn't want to have every piece of Apple hardware on it; but more of the major milestone pieces of hardware.


As for the new iMacs, they really haven't changed all that much, design wise, since the G5 iMac [yes, they are thinner now and have glossy screens, but you get my drift].
