    This was by far one of the most interesting videos I have seen on MacMost.

    I had the LaserWriter Plus (1986). It was awesome for its time.

    I ran a small business doing computer services from 1984-1989—early DTP era. We had 2 MacSE 20s (the first Mac with a 20GB hard drive) and a LaserWriter printer. We did everything from typing term papers, resumés, and flyers to publishing personalized books. Dot-matrix printers were the norm for home use. As school Tech Coordinator I bought a few Macintosh 5200 computers with the TV card. During the the 9/11 crash in NYC I used a 5200 Mac to find info as it was happening. No TVs in schools then.

    Very interesting video, Gary. I've been working with computers professionally since 1974 and there were a few products in your lineup that I'd never heard of. I was surprised the Lisa didn't make it on the list, but then, it really did succeed, just under a different name and form factor. The most interesting feature was the mouse. No one at General Dynamics had ever seen one before that $10,000 Lisa showed up. Thanks for your consistently engaging content.
