In a twenty year odyssey of stylish design and technological innovation the Apple Macintosh computer has never failed to surprise. The very first model introduced the first mouse when it was released on January 24, 1984. Since then, Apple has impressed with models such as the iMac and current favourite the PowerMac G5. Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has dubbed the Macintosh "the people's computer." However, the Macintosh accounts for only just three to five percent of computer users worldwide. It is true though that the Mac, as it is affectionately known, remains the computer of choice for a loyal band of creative professionals throughout the globe. The point-and-click Mac heralded the beginning of an era of PCs in the home at a time when the vast majority of computers were mainframe models were in the workplace.
