    Whereas the original iMac showed us that a computer can be well-designed and beautiful, I think it can be argued that the PowerMac G4 Cube was the first product that modern Apple has released where design was actually more important than the computer itself.

    The Cube is clearly not the result of building the best and most capable PowerMac they could at the time. The intention was to create as small and as quiet and as beautiful a PowerMac as humanly possible given the technology of 2000. This computer is so linked with design that it's frequently noted as having appeared on exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, even though they have several iMacs and an iPod in their collection as well.

    The Cube was a failure in the marketplace and cancelled after a year. The full-sized and expandable tower PowerMac soldiered on, becoming the Mac Pro on the switch to Intel in 2006.

    The redesigned 2013 Mac Pro, first previewed at WWDC 2013 and then fully revealed in this keynote, is so evocative of that short-lived PowerMac. Each eschews the typical computer shapes for a bolder one: a cube and a cylinder. They are the same height: just shy of 10 inches. Both take a radical approach to cooling, the original with fanless convection, and the new one with a thermal core and a single large fan pushing air out the top. Both are labelled as being assembled in the USA.

    These two Mac Pro keynotes, this one and WWDC 2013, both started with an intro video before Tim Cook walked out on stage. It's a beautifully animated vignette distilling Apple's product philosophy, emphasizing that there are a thousand no's for every yes. The video ends with the slogan "Designed by Apple in California", the first time that phrase has ever been used in an Apple keynote.

    What was the first computer that Apple put "Designed by Apple in California" on? The PowerMac G4 Cube.
