20 years after first release, we compare 1998's iMac G3 to 2017's iMac Pro.
Can you believe it's been 20 years since the iMac launched? We've got the most powerful Mac desktop yet - the iMac Pro. We've compared both the highest-end models of the G3 and iMac Pro below. The results, and more importantly, the price, may shock you.

2.3GHz Intel Xeon W
1GB PC100 SDRAM
Rage 128 VR 2D/3D

We can see that the display is now 5K, with a massive 4TB of SSD space, compared to 800x600 and a 6GB HDD back in 1998. The changes are really amazing. The price, however, not so much.
