Happy Birthday MacIntosh!

January 24, 2009

Today is the 25th birthday of the Apple MacIntosh. Drexel students were among the first users of the little machine that revolutionized personal computing back in January 1984. Drexel was the first university to require its students to own and operate a personal computer, a story told in Professor D.B. Jones's film Going National, available at the University Archives.

Thanks to Philip Terranova, Vice President for University Relations, for letting us know about the Mac's birthday.
