The Mac Plus

By on January 16, 2006

It was 20 years ago today — January 16th, 1986 — that the Macintosh Plus was introduced. Its introductory price was $2599, and it had an 8 MHz Motorola 68000, 1MB of RAM (expandable to 4MB), no hard drive, and System 3.0 for its native OS.

The Plus has the distinction of being the longest produced Mac ever; it was sold from January 16th, 1986 through October 15th, 1990. That’s 4 years and 10 months in the product pipeline.

All together now… Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday dear Mr. T, Happy Birthday to you!
