  • Apple Japan to Continue Selling First-Generation iMac PC
  • February 10, 1999 (TOKYO) — Apple Japan Inc. expects to continue selling the first-generation iMac PC in a blue-tone color for an unspecified period, said Naohisa Fukuda, director of the company’s business operations.
    Fukuda made the comment in a recent interview with Nikkei MAC.

    When the new iMac in five different colors was launched, production of the first-generation iMac was expected to be discontinued, according to industry observers.

    “Because we are still experiencing demand for the first-generation iMac, sales of those iMac PCs will continue, although not on a grand scale,” Fukuda said.

    Some PC shops may soon opt to discontinue selling the first-generation iMac, according to Apple Japan.
