    The original Mac was released thirty years ago today, and to celebrate, Apple has unveiled a special “30 Years” section of its official website that allows users to scroll through a visual timeline of the Mac’s history, starting with the original all the way to the new Mac Pro.


    Each page of the “30 Years” timeline features a quote describing that Mac’s impact on a famous person or entity, such as how the Macintosh helped pioneer electronic music thanks to John Appletone, or how Theodore Gray created Mathematica on a Macintosh II.

    The visual timeline features pages on every Mac ever, along with photos, and is accompanied by information on the most popular uses for each Mac. There’s a page for users to tell Apple about their first Mac, which then finds its way into another section that breaks down what models ended up being peoples’ entry into the Mac space.

    In addition, a video on the site includes famous individuals like Hans Zimmer and Iris van Herpen, talking about the Mac’s role in changing their industries. You can watch it below:

    On January 24, 1984, Apple Computer introduced the Macintosh




    Back in 1984, the birth of the Macintosh was not a quiet affair. Among his many talents, Steve Jobs was one of the great orators and inspiring speakers of our time. Part sage, part showman, Jobs combined the wizardry of a magician with the skills of a master salesman. The Macintosh was his baby, the intended salvation for Apple, and he wanted it launched with flair.

    Many people have heard about, but not seen, one of the most influential demos of all — the actual unveiling of the Macintosh on January 24, 1984. In front of a group of Apple shareholders and VIPs, and giving a hint of Apple keynotes to come, a tuxedo-clad Jobs and his magical child stole the show. Now you can relive that glorious moment.
