The Macintosh Computer

The Macintosh computer is more commonly known as the Apple Mac. Macintosh is a brand name which covers several lines of personal computers designed, developed, and marketed by Apple Computer Inc. The first Macintosh was a 128K model that was released on January 24, 1984. This Macintosh Computer was the first commercially successful personal computer to feature a mouse and a graphical user interface, called a (GUI) rather than a command line interface. Through the second half of the 1980s, the Apple Computer continued to build computer market share but then saw it dissipate in the 1990s as the market for personal computers shifted towards IBM PC Compatible machines running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows operating systems. Apple consolidated multiple consumer-level desktop models into the 1998 iMac all-in-one desktop computer, that sold extremely well and the Macintosh brand was revitalized.

Current Apple Mac computer systems are mainly targeted at the home, education, and creative professional markets. They include the iMac and the entry-level Mac mini desktop models, the workstation-level Mac Pro tower, the MacBook, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro laptops, and the Xserve server.

Apple developed the proprietary operating system in the Apple Mac and they are constantly improving and adding on to it, currently the Mac operating sytem is OS X 10.5, named "Leopard". Todays modern Mac is capable of running several alternative operating systems such as Linux, FreeBSD, and Microsoft Windows. Microsoft's Windows is considered to be the Mac's biggest competitor.

The Apple MacBook Air has been described as the "world's thinnest notebook". It is positioned as the ultraportable in Apple's MacBook Family. Apple introduced the MacBook Air at the Macworld Conference & Expo on January 15, 2008. Unlike the rest of the MacBook family, the MacBook Air has no directly user-replaceable parts. Its hard drive, memory, and battery are enclosed within the casing, with memory soldered directly to the motherboard.
