Is Macintosh For You? Introduction: On January 24, 1984, Apple Computer Inc. (now Apple Inc.) introduced the Macintosh  personal  computer, with the  Macintosh 128K  model, which came bundled with the  Mac OS  operating system, then known as the  System Software.   The Macintosh is often credited with  popularizing the graphical user interface. The Mac OS has been pre-installed on almost every  Macintosh computer ever sold. The first version of the Mac OS is easily distinguished between  other operating systems from the same period because it does not use a command line interface;  it was one of the first operating systems to use an entirely graphical user interface.
