Apple "Today, I'm incredibly pleased to introduce iMac, our consumer product. And iMac comes from the marriage of the excitement of the internet, with the simplicity of the Macintosh." With these words, ten years ago today, Steve Jobs unveiled the product that would literally save Apple from certain doom. The all-in-one, translucent computer would become a revolutionary product.

If you want hard drive performance, you should have firewire enclosures. USB is dog slow for data transfers. Even firewire 400 is faster than the "theoretical" USB 480. The current iMacs have firewire 800.
