Retro Tech Tributes

This Original Apple iMac Mimics the Shape of the Very First Model

— January 15, 2015 — Tech
Anyone born before 1990 should remember the Apple Lisa computer. Well, it's back again with a fresh new design, taking shape as an original Apple iMac. Inspired by the familiar profile of Steve Jobs' early machines, this personal computer has been designed to be super sleek and incredibly quick, genuinely updating a classic design.

What is missing from the CURVED/labs Lisa is the boxy form of the first version. Instead, it's been engineered like a slim piece of aluminum, bent to similar contours to stand at the height and width of its Apple Computers ancestor. This hi-tech throwback features an 11.6-inch touchscreen, with the option of setting up a Mac keyboard and a mouse. Complete with an SD card reader, this original Apple iMac is meticulously manufactured from MacBook Air components.
