I would like to personally wish a happy 30th birthday to the greatest computer of all time: the Mac. It was 30 years ago today (January 24th) that Steve Jobs revealed the first model. Though the design has changed a bit and the unit has slimmed down about 300 pounds, it’s important to remember the day the world changed.

To celebrate this momentous occasion, I present the original 1984 video of Steve Jobs (looking good) revealing the original Mac to a very excited crowd.

The video is interesting in a few different ways. One, because it’s the original reveal of a hugely popular modern day product. Two, despite the simplicity of the functions the crowd is still really excited.

The videos were found in 2004 and restored by video experts.
