Megahertz…

…from the days before gigahertz.

Another batch of Apple Computer ads from the late, great pages of MacAddict magazine. In the year 2000 we were still running laptops on 400MHz PowerPC G3s and desktops on 500MHz G4s. Just short of ten years later and smartphones—in this case, the iPhone 3G S—are running CPUs at 600MHz. Desktops are running Quad-core 3GHz chips, sometimes two to a machine.

You can peruse the ads via the thumbnails below or at maxpixpix on Flickr.

(No multi-chip machines in our household, though. Maybe by 2020.)
