The first Apple Mac – called simply the Macintosh – was released on January 24th, 1984. It had 128 kilobytes of RAM – a modern day iMac has 65536 times as much. It was the first computer in the world to feature a Graphical User Interface – displaying anything other than lines of text on a screen. It cost $2495, and was replaced within eight months by a version with 512Kb of RAM.
