April 1, 1996 is exactly 20 years after Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne came together to form Apple Computers. The management at that time made a limited edition Macintosh to celebrate, 12,000 produced copies (of which 399 were used for spare parts)

The machine had very modern specifications for it’s time. An 800x600 LCD screen, Bose sound system, a fast PowerPC and a front loader CDROM-drive.

Attempts were also made to reduce the number of cables. The subwoofer also functions as a power supply and 1 thick cable ("umbilical cord") connects the computer and the subwoofer/psu.

This is also the biggest problem. There is a lot of noise on the speakers because a relatively high voltage runs along it.

The machine was available exclusively in the US, UK, Germany, France and Japan. When purchased, the machine was delivered personally by an Apple employee.
