Insanely Great
Macintosh Computer Day (1984)
-- Named after the McIntosh variety of apple, the original Macintosh computer was released by Apple Inc. in 1984. Using a graphical user interface and mouse instead of the then-standard command-line interface, the Mac garnered an immediate, enthusiastic following. However, many software developers shied away from the challenge of rewriting command-driven programs, and there was little software initially available for the new system.

Read: Insanely Great: The Life and Times of Macintosh, the Computer that Changed Everything
-- Back in the early 1980s, word spread about an inviting little personal computer using something called a mouse and smiled at you when you turned it on. Steven Levy relates his first encounter with the pre-released Mac and goes on to chronicle the machine Apple developers hoped would make a dent in the universe. A wonderful story told by a terrific writer. Levy was the longtime writer of the popular Iconoclast column in MacWorld; he's now a columnist with Newsweek, the birth and first ten years of the Macintosh is a great read.
