In high school I rescued an Apple external monitor from the garbage which looked like an iMac G3, only twice as big. It was blue but I bet it came in different colors as well. It might still be in my attic somewhere but I can't find it right now.

The only thing I remember is that it was a VGA monitor and was really heavy. I can't seem to find any information on it by searching for "iMac G3 external CRT monitor." Does anyone remember this monitor? What was its model number and specs?

Ah, I found it. It was the Apple Studio Display. They were available as a 17" Diamondtron and a 21" Trinitron CRT.

The color calibration was the coolest part of this monitor. It could color correct based on ambient light.
