The Apple II was the first popular microcomputer manufactured by Apple Computer. Its direct ancestor was the Apple I, a circuit board computer for hobbyists that was never produced in quantity but which pioneered many of the features that made the Apple II a success. Introduced at the West Coast Computer Faire in 1977, the Apple II was one of the very first and most successful personal computers. A number of different models were sold, and the most popular model was manufactured, with relatively minor changes, into the 1990s. By the end of its production, 2 million Apple IIs were produced.
