Apple Inc. is an American multinational company based in Cupertino, California, that designs and produces electronic equipment and software. Founded in 1976 by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne. This is a review of its history in images.
The computer was finally introduced in May 1980 under the name of Apple III. Unfortunately, some technical choices, including the absence of a fan, were the reason that many teams overheated. Thousands of Apple III had to be replaced. A few months later, in November 1981, Apple launched a new version of Apple III, which corrected all the major problems of the initial version. An Apple III + came out even in 1983. But the problems of its beginnings discouraged buyers and were the reason that Apple III became Apple's first major commercial failure. Only 65,000 computers had been sold by the end of the summer, while Apple planned to sell millions like the Apple II. The teams that came out in the following years were named after Apple II (IIe in January 1983, IIc in 1984, etc.) to forget the hardships of Apple III.
The PowerBook 150 laptop was first produced in 1994 and was the last of the Apple PowerBook 100 series.

A monitor, two floppy disk drives, a 5 megabyte hard disk (something huge for the time) and a whole megabyte of RAM were included in the final model. However, what first came to mind were not all these features, but its novel user interface based on icons that were activated by pointing with an arrow controlled by a curious device called a mouse.
