Translucent plastic

Four for Friday:
Barkeater Lake by Corey Pandolph
Garfield by Paws, inc.
Pearls Before Swine by Stephan Pastis
Pooch Cafe by Paul Gilligan

The original iMac (and Apple's obnoxious lower-case "I" prefix) was introduced in 1998.

And eight years later comic strip characters still haven't upgraded.

Holy cow, but did we ever love blue translucent plastic back in 1999?

That goes to show how fun the ol’ iMacs were to draw! Who wants to lovingly illustrate a rectangular parallelepiped with a funky stand?

Not that I don’t love my MacBook Pro, but…

Arguably, the computer in the Sally Forth strip is an eMac -- generally the same computer, but no fancy translucent plastic. What's weirder still is the Sun., Oct. 1 strip has an iMac G5 on it.
