Apple II Computer

>The Apple II and the success of Apple headquarters. Cupertino, California. With the money earned by selling the Apple I, Apple could start thinking about a machine far more ambitious: the Apple II. For Wozniak, the Apple II was going to be just the computer that had wanted to build had I not had the financial constraints he had with the Apple I. He had the idea to include in the computer video memory to manage color display, just as many expansion cards included so that users could expand the capabilities of the computer for your own needs. With the design of the first prototype of the Apple II just ended, Apple Computer decided to attend the festival Personal Computing Festival, a new competition. There, the emerging microcomputer industry could show their progress and make business contacts.On the flight to Philadelphia, where he was held in 1976, the founders of Apple agreed on the plane with the founders of Processor Technology and its newly designed computer Sun, coincidentally, had a great impact in the immediate future of Apple. The vast majority of machines and micro enterprises engaged in 1976, and therefore almost all that made up the festival, were generally young fans of computer users with kits that were riding and / or welded to operate, by therefore focused mainly electronics enthusiasts.

However, Processor Technology offered a much more serious and professional, and Sun was a computer while it was focused, like others, as a kit to be mounted, he was also the possibility of acquiring computer and mounted as and ready to use.It was then that Steve Jobs knew that the future was not on plates with components that users should assemble and weld themselves, but on computers like the Sun, already assembled and ready for use and enjoyment of users. Therefore, the Apple II, which had not yet gone on sale yet, should incorporate the video output, keyboard and everything I needed in a plastic box to make it easier to use outside. Apple II. While Steve Wozniak was the creative genius of all the logic and the electronics of the Apple II, Steve Jobs was always behind creating a product that could satisfy all users, not only the most technical. Apart from the decision to sell the Apple II as a perfectly packaged set, other important decisions were theirs to invest in improved systems of power and control of heating equipment, with the Apple II computer completely silent because no fan needed to control its temperature.But such a machine would imagine a lot of money and qualified staff, something that had not. No bank wanted to venture into such a project, and less in those days: a computer usable by the general public seemed absurd at the time, since the real potential of the inhabitants, were insufficient to purchase this type of technology. Ronald Wayne, who had helped to conceive Jobs and Wozniak the Apple I, was skeptical about the chances of success of such a project and left the company. Jobs finally met in 1977, Mike Markkula, who contributed his expertise on issues and a check for 250,000.00 USD Apple capital. On that occasion also provided the first President to Apple, Mike Scott.

The final model Apple II was presented to the public in April 1977 became the canon of what was to be henceforth a personal computer.For this reason, Apple changed its logo for the famous apple logo colored, recalling that the Apple II was one of the first computers to have color monitor. By mid-1979, Apple introduced the Apple II , an evolution of the Apple II equipped, in particular, with more memory (expandable to 48 Kb 64 Kb) and programming language BASIC. Muchof Apple’s success was based on a computer that was made to please both experts and the public hackers more worldly in terms of computing. Soon, the core software for the Apple II began to grow, making the computer more attractive to the rest of the public, especially when he appeared on the market the first worksheet of history, VisiCalc, which made thousands selling herself Apple II computer.
