Apple Steve Jobs

Introduces Macintosh

24 Jan, 1984

One year on the heels of its Lisa debut, Apple introduces Macintosh at its annual shareholder’s meeting. The machine sports a graphical interface system that allows users to click on pictures with a device called a mouse. The development of the Macintosh isĀ spearheaded by Apple chairman Steve Jobs, and the device is compatible with its Lisa systems, but not with its competitor IBM, which some analysts say could hurt sales because many corporations use IBM systems. The computer weighs seventeen pounds and is priced atĀ $2,495.
