Go Inside Out with the Apple Desktops Old and New

Apple released the IIe 33 years ago. Back then, Ronald Reagan (the actor) was president, Washington won it’s first Super Bowl against Miami, and Return of the Jedi was clobbering the box office money line. What a time to be alive!

Apple’s big reveal sparked a technological revolution that’s continued through three decades and has kept the giant atop the tech world for the majority of that span. To compare the past with the present, WIRED’s new digital video series Tech Guts compares the original with the the new 27 inch i Mac, both inside and out. Plus those of us old enough to recall will get a quick nostalgia treat when the video mentions the best game for IIe.
