Byte Macintosh Review

There's a reprint of Byte's review of the original Macintosh (here's a MirrorDot mirror until the Slashdotting subsides) from August of 1984. It's an interesting look at the days when a mouse and a GUI were really new concepts for personal computer usage. Another thing to note is how painfully expensive it was. A Mac with one floppy and 128K RAM went for $2500. That's expensive today to say nothing of 21 years ago. Still, it's a nice trip down memory lane for me and a good history lesson for you young whippersnappers out there.
