Apple The very first Apple computers, distributed nationwide in 1977, had a hood you could pry off to reveal the CPU, the memory, and the motherboard.

both the mac and the pc use the same kind of ram, hard drvie and share the same type of slots. so i would say the only difference is the CPU and the price.

Originally a Mac was not a PC. A PC was a computer adhering to the IBM PC standard. A standard which has changed quite a bit over the years. Apple saw no need to adhere to this standard.
