Apple II Shipped Today

Apple Computer Inc. ships its Apple II computer. The first in a long line of related computers, the original model cost $1,298 and came with 4KB of RAM (upgradeable to 48KB), and had sound and color graphics. It also had the BASIC programming language built-in, which made programming easy. Apple II's sold particularly well in schools and, with the arrival of the VisiCalc spreadsheet program, in the small business market as well.
