Specialist's Notes

Introduced at the January 1997 MacWorld Expo as a celebration of Apple's® twentieth year as a company, a limited edition of 12,000 units of the 'TAM' were produced. Among the first desktop-style computers to feature an LCD display, the TAM was designed to be as much a work of art and design as a computer for daily use. It includes a custom Bose® sound system that includes an external subwoofer along with a custom keyboard featuring leather wrist rests and a trackpad.
