    1.5 ghz? I think my Iphone is faster than that. But this is an old strip.

    Thanks for putting it all in proper perspective! Now I can relate. :)

    They had one computer for all of them. No point in thinking about upgrades.

    Ah, the perils of temporary relevancy in comics.

    I’m sure Jason’s looking for something that will enable them to get rid of the iFruit and he’ll convince his mom to get the kind of computer HE wants so that he can play all of his favorite games on it basically 24/7.

    It’s not just technology. I saw a scene recently where a guy was at the gate at an airport waiting for his party to arrive while smoking a cigarette.

    You will find that more smoke in the movies than in reality.

    These strips are ten years old; as such, the fall 2003 iMacs would be the most relevant – the original style iMacs had already been replaced a year and a half earlier by fall 2003 with the flatscreen “lamp-style” iMacs – which came in 1.0 and 1.25GHz flavours by that point with 17" screens. The older iFruit in Foxtrot had been around for years, and stayed on long, long after the Apple iMacs that inspired it had been discontinued. Apple Support – Identifying flat-screen iMacs

    I undeerstood the joke perfectly, I was just adding context for why the rumour would have been relevant, rather than referring to specs for the several years older “iFruit” that Jason has been putting up for a long time already.
