Five Apple hardware products that time forgot

Over its 37 years in business, Apple has designed and marketed thousands of different products big and small, from support brackets to world-class computer systems. So it's not surprising that, over time, some of them have fallen under history's radar, making knowledge of their existence rare even among Apple history buffs.

We're about to take a look at five such Apple hardware products that are not only rare but also mostly forgotten. A few of them are hardly documented on the Internet, and all of them represent interesting (if little-known) chapters of Apple's history.

Of course, none of these items are truly forgotten (or else you wouldn't find them on this list), but information on them is generally scarce. If you've ever used any of the following products, you have a chance to contribute to Apple history yourself by sharing your memories in the comments.
