I remember reading reviews and seeing advertisements for these strange dinky looking machines from a fruit company?
I couldn’t afford one, I ended up with a Sinclair Spectrum then a QL but the Mac with its GUI changed everything.
When I did first use one at university I could see the point, well pointer. There were no arcane commands to learn it just made sense.
Thanks to the Mac, the work at Xerox and the boldness of Apple computers did genuinely make a quantum leap forward.
