It seems that the period of definitive retirement of the iMac CRT is approaching.
According to some sources quoted by sites dedicated to indiscretions, the original iMac and still on the list despite the launch of the LCD version, would have if not the hours, the weeks counted.
The plug would be officially disconnected in January, in conjunction with the announcement of the impossibility of booting the new machines with systems prior to 10, adding a piece to the definitive closure of a very important chapter in Apple's history.
In recent days from Taiwan, some sources apparently confirmed the indiscretion, claiming that the assemblers would already have received the order to suspend the production of the machine. If the rumor were true, to ensure supply, Apple would only count on the stocks accumulated in its warehouses.
It should be noted that once the iMac CRT was discontinued, the only Apple machine equipped with a G3 processor would remain the iBook for which there is talk of a future update even if it must be said that from the "chronological" point of view, in the laptop sector , the oldest machine in the list today the PowerBook.
