Apple Macintosh

The first Apple Mac (later renamed the "Macintosh 128k") was released on January 24, 1984 and discontinued on September 10, 1984. It was released to much fanfare after the now famous commercial directed by Ridley Scott that aired during Super Bowl XVIII. The Macintosh 128k would go on to sell over 70,000 units. If instead of buying the Macintosh on launch day, you had invested in Apple stock, your shares would be worth an estimated $1,262,044 today (or $1,251,927 after fees).
