Let us rewind to the Apple gamechanger, the 1984 Macintosh.
"On January 24th, Apple Computer will introduce Macintosh, and you'll see why 1984 won't be like 1984." This line alone will go down in computer history as one of the best marketing slogans ever.
The 1984 Apple Macintosh would go on to become one of the best selling computers of all time. It was one of the main products that would convince the general public to see value in purchasing a personal computer. Although it was sort of affordable, it was still insanely expensive at US$2,495 (equivalent to US$6,100 in 2021).
The 1984 Apple Macintosh featured Motorola 68000 @ 7.8336 MHz (6 MHz effectively) CPU, 128 KB RAM (built-in), 9 inches (23 cm) monochrome, 512 × 342 display and weighed a staggering 16.5 pounds (7.5 kg).
The 1984 Apple Macintosh 128k was discontinued the following year and replaced with the Apple Macintosh 512k, which essentially just featured a faster CPU on the same platform. The Macintosh was so popular that the name "Macintosh" or "Mac" became a household name that we still use today.
