History of the eMac

Now in this video we’re going to cover the eMac, but it’s important to note that this product was actually a spinoff of the iMac G3. So in order to fully understand the eMacs place in the market, we’re going to cover the iMac as well. So let’s begin by turning the clock back to 1998, when the personal computer industry was turned upside down with the introduction of the iMac. You see, personal computers were becoming more and more popular, both in the education setting and for personal home use. People were starting to understand and realize that these fantastic machines could cut production time, make life easier by offering information at the touch of a finger, and open lines of communication they had never experienced, and all for a pretty affordable price. Computers at the time were essentially boxes of technology that weren’t expected to serve an aesthetic purpose, but rather a functional purpose. So although they got the job done, they were all pretty ugly and boring to look at. But in 1998, the concept of the personal computer was about to change forever. And it was all thanks to the iMac G3. This machine was a revolutionary product that featured a colorful egg-shaped design that was so unusual that it appeared to be from a another planet. This new machine also featured a USB port instead of the Serial Bus connector that was standard at the time. There was one thing it was missing, though, and that was a floppy drive. Instead it had a CD drive, and other computer manufacturers followed suit which eventually led to the floppy drive becoming obsolete. So the iMac proved to be an extremely important product for Apple, especially considering it saved them from near-bankruptcy.

Apple has almost always had a reputation of pricing their products quite a bit higher than their competition, and this premium cost is commonly referred to as the Apple Tax. And it can be traced as far back as the original iPod in 2001, which had a starting price of $399, or about $570 adjusted for inflation. And when compared to other hard drive-based music players that sold for around $200, the iPod’s price was staggering. And when the iPhone was released in 2007, one of its biggest criticisms was its price, coming in at $499, or about $600 today, and that was with a two-year contract. And don’t forget the MacBook Air, which debuted with a $1,800 price tag. And that got you just 64GB of solid state storage. So the Apple tax is nothing new to longtime Apple users, but there has been an unusual trend upward in almost all Apple’s product categories over the past few years. And I think there’s more to that story than the Apple tax can account for.
