Apple eMate 300

Did You Know? Apple designed a lot of things that never made it. For instance: Apple eMate 300. This translucent clamshell portable, which ran Apple’s Newton PDA operating system, represented a bold experiment in educational computing and a drastic departure from Apple’s traditional hardware design.

The machine’s colorful case, which later inspired the iMac and the iBook, launched a new era in Apple design—though few realized it at the time. In fact, few people could actually buy the rugged machine when it launched in March 1997, as Apple offered it for sale only through education channels. #trianglecompudocs #didyouknow #apple #emate300
