Apple II

The Apple ][ is one of the first mass-produced computer systems in the world. It was designed by Steve Wozniak, with Steve Jobs overseeing the design of the case. The computer was introduced in 1977 at the West Coast Computer Fair. It marks Apple's first launch of a personal computer aimed at the mass consumer market. The vision was to have a computer for use in the home, rather than just for business or hobby enthusiasts.
