The 50 Greatest Moments in Apple History

3. The Macintosh Is Introduced

Year: 1984

It may not look like much now, but when it dropped in the mid '80s, the Apple Macintosh 128k, as it was first called, was a revolution in personal computing. The small team worked tirelessly to create the machine Steve Jobs wanted to created: Something super simple to use and set-up, but something that delivered the same graphical performance of much larger and much more expensive machines. What we got was a beautiful computer that helped introduced the idea of a graphical interface and a "mouse" to the world, as well as the idea that computers could be for everyone. Sure, it wasn't very upgradeable, but for the people it was aimed towards, that didn't matter a bit.
