1998 was the Year of the iMac. Announced in May, it didn’t ship until August, and it killed off all those legacy printer, AppleTalk, hard drive, keyboard, and mouse ports with something new called USB. The iMac quickly became the most popular computer on the market.
Low End Mac began on April 7, 1997. The first editorials were published on July 15, 1997. All editorials are by Dan Knight unless otherwise noted.
