Happy 30th birthday, Mac Plus

Hard to believe it’s been two years since the Mac’s 30th anniversary, but here we are at the 30th anniversary of the Mac Plus.1

To celebrate the occasion, Apple’s Chris Espinosa told a story—storified by Dori Smith—about buying the first Mac Plus… before the Mac Plus had actually been released. It is, in the end, a (sadly) appropriate story for MLK day.


  1. I could argue that the Mac Plus was the single most important Mac model ever released, but this is a footnote, so I won’t. ↩
