Unusual Mac prototypes

Benj Edwards for Macworld:

If you’ve been a Mac fan for more than a few years, chances are you’ve seen or even used Apple’s most famous computer models. What you don’t often see are the machines that Apple kept to itself—the prototypes that never reached the market.

Some weird ones in here I’ve never seen, like the Mac with a 5.25-inch disk drive.

    I think this explains why the iMac came out in translucent plastics: Apple probably started building translucent prototypes when Steve Jobs was at NeXT. When he returned, he saw one and wanted to ship something like it.
