Nice collection, although I'm surprised there was no mention of the first iMac commercials—certainly a pivotal point in Apple's history.

The 4-minute commercial, titled "Simplicity Shootout", is one of the few Apple commercials actually showing the advantage and function of a Mac. Besides, it's one of the cutest they had ever done. Sadly, things haven't changed much in terms of their respective operating systems.
You can see it here...

The guy second from left in the frame from the "1984" commercial looks like a thinned-down Steve Ballmer...

The G4 iMac commercial is one of my favourites.

I miss the days when you could download the ads from Apple (if you had QuickTime Pro) in your choice of resolutions. I collected (relatively) high-res versions of many of those ads. I particularly enjoyed showing the get-a-mac ads to my PC using friends. ;-)

As for the 1234 iPod ad, though I didn't buy a nano, I did go to Amazon to buy the Feist album that included the song. Ironically, it was available for less at Amazon than it was at the iTunes store.
