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