30 years ago, Apple began a journey of innovation when it launched the first Macintosh. The Apple Macintosh, later referred to as the Macintosh 128K, was released in 1984 on January 24th. The price of the computer at the time was $2,495. The first model included a 9-inch 512 x 384 monochrome display, a Motorola 68000 processor alongside 128KB of memory, and a handle to make it easier to carry. It was one of the first computers to adopt the 3.5-inch floppy disk format, which by the end of the 80’s had dominated the removable storage media market.
The video below celebrates some of those pioneers and the incredible impact they’ve made over the last 30 years.
