PC World has compiled a list of the 25 greatest computers, and the venerable Apple II came out at the top of the list. The "coolness factor" that started with the Apple II is something that carries through Appleis products to this day.
Hereis what PC World has to say about the number one greatest computer:
The Apple II wasnit the first personal computer, or the most advanced one, or even the best-selling model of its age. But in many ways it was The Machine That Changed Everything. On all four of our criteria--Innovation, Impact, Industrial Design, and Intangibles--it was such a huge winner that it ended up as our Greatest PC of All Time.
Appleis Macintosh Plus and PowerBook 100 also made it into the listis the top ten.
