Thirty Years of Mac

Apple has launched a nice little microsite to pay tribute to the Macintosh. There’s an interactive timeline (with no mention of the Power Mac G4 Cube), and a short video featuring interviews with notable users.

There’s also page for visitors to share what their first Mac was. It appears the stats are live, and so I wasn’t surprised to see four Mac models from the 1980s. But the Mac fifth most-cited by visitors as their first is a 2011 MacBook Pro. That’s not a late-90s iMac, nor an iBook G4, nor an early Intel Mac, nor anything else you might expect. Peculiar.
