      Awesome Machine

      The iMac DV was the first computer made by Apple which I owned.

      I cannot stress how groundbreaking a machine this was in its heyday - both in appearance and overall design. As such, it was the first computer to feature a USB port - futuristic stuff!

      It really is a piece of retro art as well as being an excellent computer, and wouldn't look out of place alongside a lava lamp and a space-hopper.

      The deep CRT screen, which is the trademark of this model, also functions as what would be the 'tower' on a standard PC, and houses the brains of the unit.

      I loved the way you could look into the translucent surround and see the workings of the unit - it really was a fun product to own.

      The mouse which shipped as standard with this device is of the legendary 'hockey puck' design - beautiful to look at but would annoyingly spin round in your hand as you used it.

      As a computer, the iMac DV could hold its own amongst the majority of PC's from the same era - it was powerful enough to run processor-hungry applications - for example Photoshop, and also whizzed through mundane tasks like word processing and surfing the net.

      You can get hold of an original G3 iMac for under £30 if you know where to look - eBay is a good place to start.

      I loved owning this machine, it was great fun to use and didn't ever let me down.

      It served as an introduction to Apple and I haven't looked back since. Nowadays i'm still using iMac - albeit the newest version.
