Apple's Mac Turns 30

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2014-01_4e4bb98fc6.jpgPhoto by Apic/Getty Images (NEW YORK) -- Apple is celebrating a big birthday on Friday. The tech giant's Macintosh made its debut 30 years ago, on Jan. 24, 1984. The Mac was Apple's first personal computer where users didn’t rely on text commands. Instead, they could access their programs by clicking on icons with a mouse.

Engadget's managing editor, Dana Wollman, says there's no denying its impact. "The way we use computers today was sort of born on that original Macintosh.  And I mean everything from dragging and dropping objects on the screen, to using menus, to putting things in a trash can when you wanted to delete them," she says. "All these things we take for granted when using a computer -- whether it be today a Windows computer or a Mac computer, was sort of born out that original Mac that came out in 1984," adds Wollman.
