Back in 1998, Apple introduced the first iMac to reinvigorate the Mac line. To celebrate the launch of the new 21.5-inch Retina iMac and the upgraded 27-inch Retina 5K iMac, Apple has published a page on its website featuring a comparison of the old and the new.
While the company doesn't say exactly what iMac models it is comparing, the raw numbers are amazing. The newest iMac has:
- 14 million more pixels
- 62,000 times faster graphics
- 366 times more processing power
- 1,000 times more RAM
- 750 times more storage
than the original. We've come a long way in just 17 years.
