Apple computers were revolutionary in the late 1970s and early 1980s for several reasons:
User-Friendly Interface: The Apple II computer, released in 1977, was the first mass-market computer to offer a user-friendly interface. It used a graphical user interface (GUI) that allowed users to interact with the computer using a mouse and icons, rather than typing in commands.
Affordable: At the time, most computers were expensive and primarily used by businesses and academic institutions. Apple aimed to make computers accessible to the average person by making their products affordable. The Apple II, for example, sold for $1,298, which was significantly cheaper than other computers on the market.
Third-Party Support: Apple was the first computer company to encourage third-party developers to create software for its platform. This led to a wide range of applications being developed for the Apple II, including games, word processors, and spreadsheets.
Innovative Design: Apple computers stood out from the competition with their innovative design. The Apple II was the first computer to have a plastic case and the first to use color graphics. The Macintosh, released in 1984, was the first computer to use a mouse and offer a graphical user interface as the primary method of interaction.
All of these factors combined to make Apple computers stand out in the market and appeal to a broader audience. They were user-friendly, affordable, and had a wide range of software options, making them ideal for both personal and business use.
