About SystemTalk

Macintosh 128K and 512K

SystemTalk explores computer systems design.

Our first series, A Macintosh History, covers the early Macintosh and draws from MacUser magazine. What was it like to own a Macintosh in the mid-eighties? How did users and developers adapt to the graphical user interface? If you’re new to the series, start at the beginning with A Macintosh History 85.10 (October 1985).
