What's wrong with this picture?

Evolution of iMac.
It was a great idea then, and itís a great idea now. The all-in-one design of the first flat-panel iMac cleaned up the desktop. It put everything you need ó display, processor, graphics card, hard drive, optical drive, memory, and more ó inside one simple enclosure. Today, iMac is the gold standard for an all-in-one desktop computer.

Right Six.

However you do have the Anniversary Mac, I believe that was flat panel? But was not called an iMac.

I still have a 17" 800 MHz lamp shade G4 iMac, hacked to run Leopard. It's such a beautiful design I just can't part with it. If only I could use USB 2 on it!

Those were not Flat Panel, as the quote suggest.
Anyway to me the first all in one, was the anniversary Mac, which was a flat panel.

Yes, you mentioned that. But the article was titled "Evolution of iMac." That's why we wondered why they only included the flat panel and did not mention the gumdrop.

Although the 20th Anniversary Mac was an AIO it wasn't an iMac, which is what the article was about.

Technically speaking, couldn't you consider any laptop an "All-In-One" computer? wink

I guess since laptops can sit on the desktop too they are also AIO desktops.

I'm so confused. crazy
