Apple II and Macintosh Computers

  • Gerard O’Regan


Apple Inc. is a well-known American corporation that was founded by Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs at Cupertino, California, in 1976. It has made major contributions to the computing field, and it is renowned for its innovative products and services. The Apple II computer was released in 1977, and it was one of the earliest computers to come pre-assembled. It included color graphics and came in its own plastic casing. The Apple Macintosh was released in 1984, and its revolutionary graphical user interface (GUI) was user friendly and intuitive and made the machine much easier to use than the standard IBM PC.
