    The personality card isn't the video card. The video "card" is the ATI Rage chip.

    "Only mac to support video capture by its stock configuration" – incorrect; 1993's Quadra 840av and Centris 660av both had the same array of SVideo/Composite inputs and outputs. They only had a 68040 CPU, but include a digital signal processor from Texas Instruments to help with AV functionality. I recorded episodes of Beavis and Butthead of my VCR in 1994 into tiny quicktime clips. If you need a Mac person to fact-check your copy before posting, I'll do it.

    Actually the Centris/Quadra 660AV and Quadra 840AV had S-Video inputs and outputs and could capture video signal all the way back in 1993….so I think your statement at 6:13 is incorrect. I was recording and doing video editing on a 660AV long before the AIO….🤷‍♂️

    I found one of these in pretty horrid condition, and I decided to clean it up, and even give it a new coat of paint to make it look a bit more like an iMac G3! I don’t regret it, and the machine looks fantastic!

    Worked a project for a school district around the turn of the millennium, and they had a bunch of these systems. Upgrading the memory on them was a breeze, and they were also much faster than many of the older Macs that the school district still had.

    I used to have one, it was a good computer but yes kinda weird looking and very heavy. I think I bought one in 2002 or so and used it mostly for music production, it worked fine for that.

    I was really confused why your voice sounded different and that you look different then I realized this was made 5 years ago

    Definitely not the first Mac to have video capture as part of the stock configuration. The Centris 660AV and Quadra 840AV were the first. I used to own the latter.

    Purchased a dozen of these for the high school I worked at in 1998. Complete with the high end personality cards. They were fucking huge! They were also super powerful for the time and super popular with the students and staff. I used it, but at the time I had a Quadra as my desktop that was even more powerful and full of goodies I never used that plugged into the movie editing quality cards I stuffed in it. That thing screamed!

    The G3 AIO was actually not the first mac with video capture. The Macs in the Power Macintosh 500 series (a.k.a. the 7500, 8500, and 9500) all had video capture options from Apple.
