Macintosh

Apple’s seminal product that revolutionised the computing industry by incorporating a GUI interface in the operating system. The first primitive Mac, produced in 1984, had the same basic elements now considered standard for all PCs—e.g., software formats like “pull-down” menus, “point-and-shoot” commands, and icons to represent files, programs and landmarks on the desktop, as well as hardware elements such as a mouse to navigate through the software and straightforward screen displays. Macs and modern PCs are “user friendly”, designed so that technologically unsophisticated consumers are able to use computers without the need to understand their internal workings.
