My Vintage Macs

iMac G4 (17", USB 2.0)


The coolest computer Apple ever made, or probably the coolest computer ever really.

If you've never had the pleasure of using one of these in real life, you're missing out on the most fluid and wonderful monitor arm in existence. I could really gush for hours about this and how no modern monitor arms even come close. It moves with such a tiny amount of force, and so smoothly, and the screen tilt stays the same when you move it up and down! It's an incredible piece of engineering.

I've wanted one of these since I was a kid and seriously spent way too much money trying to get a perfect one with a good spec (I bought four in varying states of repair and this iMac is the culmination of a lot of part swapping.

This Mac lives down in my soldering area in my bedroom and is great for looking at schematics, datasheets, and vibing to music out of the Pro Speakers as I do electronics work.

Proudly made on my iMac G5
