Apple began selling its first computer in July 1976. Apple Before the Mac looks at the Apple II and Apple III era that predate the Mac.
Jason Walsh is a journalist living in Ireland. He has written for the Guardian, the Independent, Macworld, and Wired News. He has also written many articles for Low End Mac covering the Mac era.
- The Ill-fated Apple III, 2005.01.05. “…not only was the Apple III mind crunchingly expensive, it was made with none of the passion of the Apple II or Macintosh.”
- Jef Raskin, the Visionary Behind the Mac, 2005.01.19. “I avoided the supposed “visionaries” in the company who could not understand my idea but presented a business case: People would buy a product that they could readily and happily use.”
- The Apple IIGS, Apple’s Home Computer for 1986, Jason Walsh, Apple Before the Mac, 2005.02.16. Believing Apple II users demanded color and would avoid the Macintosh, Apple created a 16-bit version of the popular Apple II computer.
