From the Paper:

"The Macintosh was introduced in January 1984, with a new 3 inch disk drive which was much faster than the drives in the other machines, including the Apple II. The Macintosh was a very popular computer, designed for people with minimal technical knowledge. Apple sold approximately 70,000 Macintosh computers within 3 months. A new Macintosh was in September 1984, with more memory and two disk drives. Over the next few months Apple released several products for the Macintosh, including a hard drive and laser printer. The Macintosh personal computer ultimately moved Apple into the business office market."
