Apple Macintosh Plus

The image is clickable

1986.

All of the Apple computers have had a code name during the development. Macintosh Plus was named "Mr T". Mr T was the first real improvment of the Macintosh 128. Between these two we certainly had Macintosh 512, but it was basically the same but with better memory. Macintoch Plus got more news and improvements.

Since we already have touched on to the memory, we can begin there. Macintosh Plus had 1 MB RAM expansible to 4 MB. ROM was also expanded. It now amounts to 128 KB. It contained a new and improved Mac OS and during the next five year period of selling - which was a Macintosh record - it managed to run up to the Mac OS 7.5.

The disk drive was now able to run double-sided discs, and therefor up to 800 KB. Earlier it was only single-sided 400 KB discs. The new SCSI port gave access to a wide and varied range of accessories. The keyboard was gifted with a numerical part.

Is there any errors? e-mail and correct me!
