The Mac Computer Turns 30… We Feel Old

Today is a big day for Apple and fans of the Mac computer. Apple is celebrating the 30th birthday of the launch of the very first Macintosh back in 1984. I can remember vividly being in grade school back in ’84 or ’85 and our class got a Macintosh computer. It sat there and no one ever touched it because the teacher didn’t know how to use it.

I never played with that Mac, and I was always rather bitter about it sitting there with no fun to be had. Regardless of my personal experience with the original Macintosh, its launch was still a pivotal moment in desktop computing. In celebration of 30 years of Macintosh, Apple has put together a cool timeline that gives some details about each iteration of the Mac on the road from 1984 to today.

The timeline shows some of the famous people that used the machines and what they did with them. Technology has certainly changed in 30 years; it makes you wonder what the Mac will look like 30 years from now.
