A Year Ago: Orange not the only fruit in iMac's basket

Originally published Fri, 16 Apr 1999 15:12:32 GMT

According to sources, the tangerine and strawberry iMacs in Apples multi-coloured computer world are proving about as popular as the green sweets in a packet of fruit pastels.

While blueberry iMacs are flying off the shelves, the tangerine and strawberry varieties have lost their tang it appears. Some dealers are so desperate to get rid of the tangerine and strawberry machines they are offering customers £50 off if they agree to enter a lottery and take whatever colour comes up. What consumers are not told is the unpopular orange and red machines are the only ones on offer.
