Yes, there’s an iPhone SE– an aging and diminutive version of the latest iPhone models– but there once was a Macintosh SE. Luke Dormehl walks into history.
August 1, 1989: Apple gives the Macintosh SE a storage bump, courtesy of the new SuperDrive. Capable of handling high-density floppy discs, the drive offers an astonishing 1.4MB of storage.
1.4MB was big news. My first hard disk drive was 10MB and it cost $1,500. My wife went to a trade show recently and came home with a handful of 8GB USB jump drives for free.
I owned a Mac SE and spent $900 to double RAM to 4MB.
