The Macintosh 128K was the very first Macintosh, discounting the Macintosh XL.
Released amidst the fanfare of the 1984 Apple ad, its popularity, however, was not earthshaking.
Memory and Hard Drive
There was only 128 KB of RAM available, and no hard drives were available.
- Unlike subsequent Macs, the words "Macintosh 128K" did not appear on the front panels of the very first 128Ks to roll off the assembly line. The name only came into being on the front panel later on in its life.
