Curator Notes

This Macintosh is combined with a color television and came with a remote control. While the idea of combining computers with televisions and other entertainment devices dates far back, in the 1990s people did not seem to want to watch television on their computers. Today, computers and television are converging: many people now think nothing of watching a feature-length film on a mobile device as small as a cellular phone, for example.
