The Twentieth Anniversary Mac (TAM) was discontinued 20 years ago, in March 1998.To remember it in all its 90's glory, we're resurfacing this article commemorating the 15th anniversary of the TAM's retirement. Now we're all five years older, so a little refresher is warranted! The post originally ran on March 15, 2013. When the first iMac was introduced in 1998, it started a new era of computing for those who didn't need all the power (and expense) of a tower or expandable desktop. But while the Bondable all-in-one got a lot of attention, it wasn't Apple's first dalliance with unconventional design.
Before the iMac was the Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh, first introduced in 1997 and discontinued 15 years ago this week, on March 14, 1998five months before the iMac came out. Editor's note: Actually 20 years ago as of March 2018!
The Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh (or TAM) came with a PowerPC 603e CPU clocked at 250MHz and a 12.1-inch active matrix LCD display. It also came with a built-in TV and FM tuner so the user could easily flip between computer mode and television, along with a massive Bose. Apple introduced the machine as a way to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Apple's first computer, which occurred in April of 1996. At the time, most of Apple's offerings were boring beige boxes, so the TAM's design was especially unique due to its nearly flat, all-in-one nature. Its metallic green-gold paint job.
During the TAM's short lifetime, it was only introduced in five countries (USA, Japan, France, Germany, UK), while a handful of machines were sent to Apple Australia.
