1984 review of original Mac Oct 23 2009
Larry Magid reviewed the original Macintosh in the LA Times in 1984. Here's his original review.
Like the Lisa, it uses a hand-held "mouse" -- a small pointing device which enables the user to select programs, and move data from one part of the screen to another. Also like the Lisa, Macintosh uses a black and white display screen whose resolution is so high that it can quickly draw detailed pictures while at the same time display crisp and readable text.
