Apple's Beginnings

Home | History

Apple's first product (the Apple I personal computer kit) was hand made by Wozniak and was first shown off at the Homebrew Computer Club.  The Apple I was not a full personal computer, it was just a motherboard with CPU, RAM, and basic textual-video chips.  Apple officially became Apple Incorporated on January 3rd, 1977.  After that, Apple decided to mave on and created the Apple II, their first full computer (shown to the right). It was released on April 16, 1977. It differed from it's competitors because of graphics and archetecture. By the end of the 1970's, Apple had a staff of computer designers and a production line. The company introduced the Apple III in May of 1980 in an to try to compete with IBM and Microsoft, but sadly, didn't do so well.
