January 19, 1989: Apple introduces the Macintosh SE/30, arguably the greatest of the classic black-and-white compact Macs.
The SE/30 boasts a 16-MHz 68030 processor, either 40MB or 80MB hard drive, and a choice of 1MB or 4MB of RAM as standard — which, amazingly, can be expanded up to a whopping 128MB. Oh, and it packs a 1.4 MB SuperDrive, too.
When you picture the ideal 1980s Macintosh, this is likely the machine that comes to mind. And for good reason!
