The origins of Apple computers
On Jan. 24, 1984, a new computer company called Apple shook up the world of personal computers with the introduction of the Macintosh. A small but innovative machine, the first personal computer sold with the handy "mouse," the Macintosh was an instant hit, cementing Apple's place in the hyper-competitive personal computer market and the history of the home computing. Twenty-five years after the release of the Macintosh, the CBC Digital Archives brings you a brief look back on the early days of Apple and the Macintosh.
