Mac 128K: The Original Macintosh





Apple introduced the Macintosh in a famed 1984 Super Bowl commercial, giving the public an alternative to IBM compatibles and Microsoft operating systems. Also dubbed "Mac 128K" (named for its RAM), much of the Lisa GUI code was used in this pioneer Mac model. Large volume sales within the first 100 days of its release gave Apple a strong -- and more affordable -- foothold in personal computing than what Lisa offered.

LIFEBOOK UH574

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
