The Colors of Apple

Linus Edwards of VintageZen takes a look at the color palette Apple has used throughout their history in a variety of products, from the original Macintosh to the translucent plastics in iMacs and iBooks to colorful iPods. Compare that history to today's flagship products, which are aluminum and framed by black or white glass. The conversation comes in light of an impending update to the iPhone 5, which is rumored to be launching with graphite and champagne as additional colors options at the high-end. Perhaps these classy colors are intended to be throwbacks to the gray Powerbooks and beige Macs of the 90s.
