4 great companies, all with different strengths. Think what they would be like if they were combined. Sleek shiny laptops with great networking, a library of books, and big ears. :)
One of the things that got my attention with the Apple II was the architecture of the motherboard was very similar to the $60,000 mini computer we were using at work. Made programming much easier. Then the IBM PC came out and I pretty much forgot about the Apple II.
