Announced in March 1998, The G3 All-in-One built on the success of previous built-in monitor models. The AIO was the first Built-to-Order All-in-One mac, and was available only in educational markets. It was based on the same motherboard as its big brother, the PowerMac G3, and had a built-in 15" monitor. The 233 MHz Configuration started for $1599, and the 266 MHz MHz Configuration, which included video input and output, sold for several hundred dollars more. There was also a built-in Zip drive option. The G3 AIO was retired only 6 months later, after the release of the iMac.
