Apple shipped CD bundles in cardboard envelope packages up until 2003 when they began using clear plastic bags. In 2004, they were using both types of packaging. The examples here show a white cardboard envelope with a light gray Apple logo and a clear plastic software bundle package.

Also note that by 2004 Apple has mostly switched to using the Myriad Apple font for products, but the Apple Garamond font is still appearing in rare situations.

Apple blank DVD media (2001)

In the early 2000s when Apple began offering a re-writable CD/DVD drive as an option, they included your first blank DVD-R disc along with your Mac purchase. Apple took the opportunity to fully brand the disc with printed packaging and a custom-printed DVD-R.

I have two unused examples of this official Apple blank media, one with a grape (purple) logo “Certified for use with Power Mac G4 DVD-R drives” (part number 603-047-A, unopened in shrink wrap) and another with a blueberry (bright blue) logo “Certified for use with Apple DVD-R drives” (part number 600-8671).

Power Mac G4 (1.0 GHz, “Quicksilver,” 2002)

The Power Macintosh G4/1.0 GHz was nicknamed “Quicksilver” because of its new silver color and its significant speed upgrades from the previous graphite G4 model. Internally, it included dual 1.0 GHz PowerPC 7450 (or 7455) G4 processors, 512 MB RAM, an 80 GB hard drive, and a wireless connection was available with the addition of an optional AirPort (802.11b) card. A few Quicksilver models were available with different levels of processors, drive capacities, and RAM options.

The front of the Power Macintosh G4 “Quicksilver” was opaque silver (replacing translucent plastics of previous designs). The top included spaces for two optical drives. This example includes a DVD-ROM drive in the top space and no device in the lower space. Below the optical drives was the power button, and two additional smaller buttons—reset and “interrupt” buttons—both used to recover from system-level issues. The bottom-center features a prominent chrome-finished speaker (without a protective grille).

The ports on the back included stacked headphone and line-out speaker 3.5 mm jacks; a modem (telephone) port; one ethernet port; two FireWire (400) ports; and two USB ports. Five slots were also available. This model included slot 1 with a standard VGA port and a proprietary ADC (Apple Display Connector) port, while slots 2–5 are unused.

The right side of the tower included a latch with a circular rubberized grip that allowed the entire side of the tower to be opened on a hinge, revealing and providing relatively easy access to all internal components. Plug-in slots (such as video, memory, and wireless) were attached to the hinged side, while components such as drives and fans remained attached to the internal metal frame of the tower.

The four corners of this tower serve as feet and/or handles. They are cast in crystal clear acrylic.
