Today in the fifth installment of Macinography, we journey back to the third epoch of Apple design beginning in the year of 1993. The traditional all-in-one Mac was getting a bit creaky. A brand new Mac in a newly designed case sought to carry the torch of the all-in-one Mac. This Mac would definitely be one for the history books… but not for the reasons they thought it would. Listen in for the story of the Mac Color Classic.
