Speaking of aged spinsters, Apple's very first Mac computer went on sale on January, 24, 1984.
Here are some details on the Macintosh 128K from Wired's Tony Long:
The Macintosh 128K (that was your RAM) screamed along at 8 MHz, featured two serial ports and could accommodate one 3.5-inch floppy disc. It ran the Mac OS 1.0, came with a 9-inch black-and-white monitor and sold for a cool $2,500 (the equivalent of $5,000 in today's dollars).
In the first three months, about 50,000 128K's were sold. Nowadays, Apple product sales can number in the millions each quarter. You've come a long way, Mac.
