The 2002 iMac G4, aka the "Pixar iMac"
This was the Mac you played with.
A reference to Luxo Jr., the springing animated lamp that appears at the beginning of every Pixar film, the iMac G4 with the articulated screen wasn't just flexible and cute, but strong enough to be grabbed by its neck, the way a teddy bear can be swung around by its arm when carried by a child. You can't break it (well, you can, but it's stronger than it looks). It's for the child in you. Go ahead. Give it a cute name and treat it like a toy.
