The Apple II started it all. Built just 12 months after the Apple I, the Apple II started Apple on the journey that the company has become today. It was the fastest-selling personal computer of its time, and was designed primarily by Wozniak. A little known fact is the Apple II was actually a line of computers that Apple kept producing, up until the Apple IIe, which stopped in November 1993.
The Apple II was one of the first personal computers that had color graphics, and came with two gaming paddles right out of the box. There were also eight slots built into the Apple II allowing users to expand it and customize it, including adding more memory, graphics and the ability to add a printer and a floppy drive.Apple's first big-time computer cost consumers $1,298 when it first went on sale, but that didn't stop the company from selling "well over 300,000 units." It generated Apple Computer $79 million in revenue during 1979.
