Computer History Museum | January 22, 1984: This Day in History: Apple Computer Launches the Macintosh

Hard to believe it has been 30 years

"Apple Computer launches the Macintosh, the first successful mouse-driven computer with a graphic user interface, with a single $1.5 million commercial during the Super Bowl. Apple's commercial played on the theme of George Orwell's 1984 and featured the destruction of Big Brother -- a veiled reference to IBM -- with the power of personal computing found in a Macintosh."
