Five Years Ago
September 7, 2011 - Dave Hecei
Five years back doesn’t seem like too long ago. But in computer age, that’s almost a lifetime. This is truer than you may think since product generations are only a year or two apart. We currently are on the second-generation iPad and the third will be here fairly soon. Let’s take a look at what Apple was doing five years ago.
All Macs were now Intel based – PowerPC was phased out.Product sample and pricing:
Fall of 2006 - The base model iMac was white plastic, 1.83GHz Core-Duo processor, 512MB of RAM (2GB Max), 160GB HD, OS x Tiger, iLife '06. Sold for $1299.
Today - iMac aluminum 21.5-inch, 2.5GHz Intel Core i5 quad-core processor, 4GB RAM (16GB max), 500GB HD, Radeon HD 6750M graphics w/512MB Vram, OS X Lion, iLife '11. Sells for $1199.
