Apple II: The first Apple Computer running Windows 1.0 – Mac turns 25

Here’s the first known photo of an Apple computer running Windows 1.0 software. Yes, Mr. Bootcamp, Windows on Apple in 1983. It wasn’t a Macintosh, but an Apple II with a monochrome screen and PC emulator hardware installed. The board was called the 88 Card, “the only fully functional 8088 processor for the Apple II personcal computer” and it had the stunning list price of $899. But don’t fret, because this also included 64K of additional RAM and CP/M 86—if you wanted DOS and Windows you had to buy them separately.


Steve Jobs on January 24, 1984 gave the first on-stage demonstration of the Macintosh computer, that was sold for $2,495 and came with a 9 inch screen in an upright beige case, 128k of RAM, a floppy drive, a keyboard and a single-button mouse. Sales were initially strong, with the Macintosh selling 72,000 units by May 3, 1984. However, sales dropped afterwards and the computer was re-badged as the Macintosh 128K when its successor, the Macintosh 512K, was introduced in September 1984.
