Apple Pulls Plug on G4 Cube Computer

July 08, 2001|Joseph Menn

Bowing to slack demand for one of its most innovative machines, Apple Computer Inc. indefinitely suspended production of the year-old Power Mac G4 Cube.

The visually stunning 8-inch machine, packaged in a translucent white case, looked more like a sculpture than a personal computer, but reviewers found too much had been sacrificed in the name of sleekness.

The device was criticized as too expensive for consumers and students and not powerful enough for graphic artists and designers.
