1976 - Apple was first founded on 1 April 1976 by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne. Wayne subsequently sold his share of the company back to his partners for $800. The first offering by the company was a hand built Apple I personal computer retailing for $666.66
Apple computers did not sell well until 1977, when the Apple II was unveiled at a West Coast Computer Faire. The Apple II was the first computer to be built in a plastic case and to feature color graphics. In early 1978, Apple Disk II floppy drive was introduced and further increased sales of Apple Computers.
The Apple II was positioned well ahead of its competitors and subsequently became the personal computer of choice for the business world with the VisiCalc spreadsheet program.
1984 - Apple launches the Macintosh with its powerful TV commercial directed by Ridley Scott. The Mac was a success thanks to its advanced graphical capabilities. It performed well at first, but sales quickly declined due to the small amount of RAM and lack of hard drive.
During 1985, Apple introduced the LaserWriter, the first affordable laser printer for the Mac and PageMaker, a desktop publishing program. These two items gave the Mac an edge in the desktop publishing realm, and increased sales for Apple Computers.
In 1980, the Apple III was released which contained a processor that could run at 2 megahertz and 128K of on-board RAM.
1996 - Apple purchases NeXT, bringing Steve Jobs back into Apple as an advisor. He eventually became the interim CEO until 2000 when he officially stepped into the role permanently.
