Apple has completed the withdrawal from sale of its company-saving CRT G3 iMac line, with that product no longer being made available through the company's education Apple Store.

Apple removed the multi-award-winning product from its consumer Apple Store in March. At the time this was hailed as the end of an era. Apple's LCD G4 iMac inherits the product's name.

The decision to withdraw the model from sale follows Apple's introduction of new eMacs at lower price points yesterday. Unlike the majority of new Macs, the eMacs retain the ability to boot up in Mac OS 9, according to technical specifications for the product.
