What’s in the bag Steve

So Happy 30th Birthday Macintosh, this video from the original launch event once again demonstrates Jobs extraordinary ability to demo a product.

Although of course technically a huge step forward from the green screen personal computers of the time, the Mac was a commercial disaster leading to the infamous ousting of Jobs from Apple just a year later..Apple have done a great job celebrating the last 30 years, with Macs and their users from each year, including the awful Macs of the mid 1990’s at http://www.apple.com/30-years/

For the record, my personal ownership has been as follows..

1987 – Macintosh SE
1989 – Macintosh IIci
1990 – Macintosh LC (first Mac I actually purchased with my own money)
1992 – Powerbook 170 & Quadra 700
1993 – Cenris 660AV
1995 – Power Macintosh 8500

The Dark Years….

2002 iMac (the luxo lamp)
2004 PowerBook G4
2005 Power Mac G5
2007 Macbook Pro
2008 Macbook (White)
2009 Macbook Air
