HISTORY: Jony Ive Describing the 20th Anniversary Macintosh (videos)

For all the Apple-fans out there... 
I'm sure you all know of the 20th Anniversary Macintosh that was publicly unveiled upon Steve Jobs return to Apple in the late 1990s... Whether you are familiar with it or not, below is a video of the computer being introduced and another video of Senior Apple Designer Jony Ive describing the industrial design of the latest desktop computer (of its time)... 

For those who don’t know, the 20th Anniversary Mac was a limited edition Mac priced at a whopping $7499. It was one of the first all-in-one computers to have an LCD display, and at the time was about as cool as a computer could be. Looking back, it’s easy to see how the design and thought of the 20th Anniversary Mac influenced the design of future Macs, especially iMacs. 
Below is the full-video of the Macworld Expo keynote back in 1997 with Apple CEO (of the time) Gil Amelio. This event not only introduced the 20th Anniversary Mac, but also was the keynote that welcomed Steve Jobs back to Apple...
