Coming up: On April 1, 1976, Apple Computer was founded in Mountain View, CA.  The company incorporated in early 1977, and introduced the Apple II at the West Coast Computer Faire the same year.  The Apple II had a 1 MHz MOS Technology 6502 microprocessor and 4 KB of RAM, expandable to 48 KB. The 48 KB version sold for $2638. About the same amount of money today gets you an iMac with a 2GHz Intel Core Duo processor, 2MB shared L2 cache at full processor speed, from 512 MB to 2 GB of RAM and much, much more thanks to Moore's Law, Steve Jobs and thousands of others. We'll have more coverage next week...
