Apple II Forever

On April 24th, 1984 during an Apple event called Apple II Forever held at San Francisco’s Moscone Center, Apple introduced the portable Apple IIc personal computer.

Though the terminal lacked a monitor, it was relatively small and lightweight compared to its contemporaries. The IIc was seen as the company’s response to then new IBM PCjr.

The Moscone Center event started with a video aptly titled, Apple II Forever, shown on three large onstage screens. Set to a theme song of the same name, it featured a slideshow of photos chronicling Apple’s history and successes up to 1984.
