Apple's first-generation iMac computer has turned 20. It was on May 6, 1998, that the Cupertino-based company introduced its first-ever all-in-one desktop, paving way for advanced computing technologies as we know today.

The first iMac was unveiled by the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. It featured a 15-inch CRT screen, and a meagre 4GB hard drive.

Despite the entry-level specifications, compared to the computers today, the iMac was responsible for bringing Apple back into the business after years of business blunders, Engadget has reported.

From $1,299 (roughly Rs. 87,200)-priced original iMac to the present-day iMac Pro at $4,999 (roughly Rs. 3.35 lakhs), Apple has brought in revolutionary technology at a premium.

Commemorating the 20th anniversary of the iMac, Apple CEO Tim Cook posted a tweet with a video of the company's iconic co-founder Steve Jobs unveiling the product. In the tweet, Cook says, "20 years ago today, Steve introduced the world to iMac. It set Apple on a new course and forever changed the way people look at computers."
