The first-gen Macintosh, although pricier at $2,495, was of a humble configuration in today's smartphone-era. It came equipped with a Motorola 68000 CPU running at 8HMz with only 128K of RAM. The 9-inch black-and-white monitor featured a 512×342-pixel resolution, and the built-in 3.5-inch floppy drive supported disks that topped out at 400K of storage.

Steve Jobs called the Macintosh "a third industry standard" after the Apple II and IBM Computer. At the launch event, Jobs pulled out the Macintosh out of a bag, and inserted a disk into the 3.5-inch drive and started up the machine. That's when the first Macintosh said "Hello".
