Via Mashable:

The year 1984 was a wild time, and not just because it was when Apple — whose later invention, the iPhone, would spark fears about the surveillance state imagined in the book 1984 — became a global phenomena. But also because there were bowties.

Maybe Steve Jobs’ hands are just really big, but the original Mac looks tiny! With just a 9-inch black and white monitor, this baby originally sold for about $2,500 — the equivalent of around $5,000 today.
