Posted: Saturday, April 22, 2017

Technically, I could have spent all of this past week living off-grid. For the past week, I’ve charged every electronic gadget I own off a giant battery pack that’s more like a mini generator alternative than a battery pack. Unlike the kind of thing you buy off Amazon for $40, the River pack can’t fit in a laptop bag, and it definitely doesn’t cost $40. But for $459, what you…

Apple’s iMac line has been around for almost two decades now; the first launched inside the late 90s. But the consumer-grade Mac has changed a lot in that time.
