Apple With the success of the iPod, the subsequent resurgence in popularity of the Macintosh platform, and the recent iPhone smash hit, it's hard to imagine that Apple was once a company that tried to enter every market possible, leaving a trail of flopped products in its wake. Forbes lists ten of them, and we take a look at some of them, and add one of our own.

The Macintosh Performa should probably be on that list as well, as it was largely a flop. It was a consumer level machine that did very poorly and was not marketed.


Ah yes, the Performa - IIRC, even most Mac fans of day hated them.

Not to mention the spontaneously-combusting PowerBook from the mid-late 90s(forget the model now - 5400, maybe?).
