Folks over at OSX Daily have dug up an interesting video of Apple design chief Jony Ive, discussing the limited edition 20th Anniversary Mac in 1997. Even 15 years back, Jony Ive is seen detailing the product, design and experience in his typical “poetic” manner.
As the source so correctly points out, you could literally insert an iMac or an iOS product in place of the “20th Anniversary Mac” and you would get the same feel as you do with a modern Apple promo video.
For those who don’t know, the 20th Anniversary Mac was a limited edition Mac priced at a whopping $7499. It was one of the first all-in-one computers to have an LCD display, and at the time was about as cool as a computer could be. Looking back, it’s easy to see how the design and thought of the 20th Anniversary Mac influenced the design of future Macs, especially iMacs.
