The original Mac retailed for $2,495—that's $5,594.11 in today's dollars. So what did you get for all that coin?
8 MHz Motorola 68000 processor
128 KB DRAM
9" black-and-white CRT display running at 512 x 342 (72 dpi)
400 KB total storage via a single-sided 3.5-inch floppy disk drive
Single-button mouse and hefty keyboard
Inflation notwithstanding, this treasure of the '80s didn’t cost us a cent. A big thanks to our friends at the Vintage Mac Museum for lending us this Mac, and to Cult of Mac for injecting some extra '80s flavor into the teardown!
