🇺🇸1/19 - Apple Lisa, The first commercial personal computer
The Apple Lisa, the first commercial personal computer from Apple Inc. to have a graphical user interface and a computer mouse, is announced.
The Lisa is a desktop computer developed by Apple, released on January 19, 1983. It was one of the first personal computers to provide a graphical user interface (GUI) for a system intended for individual business users. Lisa's development began in 1978 and went through many changes during development and was released for US$9,995 (equivalent to $25,970 in 2020) with a 5MB hard drive. Lisa was affected by high prices, insufficient software, unreliable Apple FileWare floppy disks, and the immediate release of cheaper and faster Macintoshes. Only 10,000 Lisa were sold in two years. Lisa, which received technical acclaim but was considered a commercial failure, introduced several advanced features that would later reappear in Macintosh and IBM PC-compatible products.
