I could have used a copy of this poster in 1996.

In the Mac world, Jobs IS god.

You know, I've never seen a Mac Portable.

Or, their big *nix-y servers; whose design I drool over. (Which are missing from that chart)

This would be a cool poster.

Did this guy call a IIsi a "Macintosh Classic"?

the early 90s row is messed up -- and he forgot the centris/quadra 650/7100 form factor and beige G3 towers (to name a few)

not bad for a first effort.

we used to call the Mac Portable the "Mac Luggable."

Yeah, he turned the IIsi into the Mac Classic. Niiiice.

This reminds me of the big poster of turntables that I got in a copy of Grand Royal magazine about 10 years ago. Wonder where I put that...

Speaking of Apple design over the years, one of my favorite design books on my bookshelf is AppleDesign (Graphis Press), which covers Apple's complete industrial design history from the founding of the company through the end of 1997 (including many fascinating prototypes), leaving off with Jonathan Ive providing a teaser quote about some radically new designs to come from the Apple ID group...

I really wish a second edition of this book could be done, with an expanded history to present and all the annoying typos fixed, but I'm sure Jobs would never allow it...

well, Jobs won't be there forever, and he has plenty of other things to do, too.

No Quadra 950?

I loved that box.

Nice to see the family tree, but the Mac Plus is (was) the best personal computer ever (except when it crashed, which was way too much).

An interesting attempt. He included several failures but left out a couple of popular/important models. WTF, no SE/30 just because it looks similar to a SE? The names need work too. It looks like a typo or brainfade, the IIsi was given the same name as the Classic next to it.

There is is Macintosh II in both 1987 and 1989. The 1989 version should be the IIci.

Also the Power Mac 6100 is there but no 7100 or any similar form factor machine (7500, Beige G3 desktop, etc.).

Looks like the IIsi/Classic thing is fixed though.

Okay, it looks like he has fixed parts of it.

The SE/30 is *STILL* missing though. It was a business workhorse that was sold for almost three years. Between the stock model and SE/30 upgrades for the SE models, I think it was one of the best selling models of the time.

The 1991 PowerBook should be PowerBook 140. The 1998 G3 All-In-One "molar" needs a better name than the generic "Power Macintosh."

AllGold, it looks like the 1989 Macintosh II was renamed Macintosh IIfx. I agree that he needs to add the 7100 and 8100 in 1994, and the desktop version of the 1997 Beige G3.

Until we moved, much to my wife's dismay, I had quite a few of the macs listed here (starting with the 128). I still have quite a few, but nowhere near as many as before.

I actually did see the mac portables being used a couple of times at volley ball tournaments in Hermosa Beach.

They have a IIci listed for 1989. The IIfx that they also have for 1989 is the exact same picture as the 1987 Mac II, and it's the same form factor. Also, the IIfx wasn't introduced until March 1990.

I bet the focus of the poster is industrial case design.

The SE / 30 borrows it's case almost entirely from previous models.

Looks like he's been making lots of changes. The 1989 IIci was listed as a Macintosh II at the time.

I would have said it's like he's been reading this thread except the page has lots of Diggs so I'm sure he's getting plenty of email feedback.
