This iconic little computer is the cause of all this weekend's celebrations. Originally simply the 'Macintosh', it was introduced to great fanfare (Ridley Scott's famous Orwell-themed advert) on January 24 1984. At launch, the original Macintosh cost $2,495. The '128K' label was added after the 512K model appeared in October that year.
The Macintosh 128K is, of course, very collectable, and you can pick up a Model M001 in working order on eBay for around $1,000. If you want to remind yourself what brought the WIMP (Windows, Icons, Menus, Pointer) revolution to the mainstream, and do the 'floppy disk shuffle', grab yourself one of these museum pieces.
