From a Little Apple a Mighty Industry GrowsWired:
The Apple II is the computer that made Apple a driving force in a new industry. The company's original computer bore little resemblance to what we would now call a PC, but that all changed with the appearance of its successor, the Apple II.That's true only if you include the 1.25 million IIGS systems that were sold. Meanwhile, Commodore sold over 17 million units of the Commodore 64, which, incidentally, is the best-selling computer of all time. Also, the C64 had true sound hardware, unlike the Apple II (and contrary the article quoted above). Anyway. You can't deny that Apple got there first with the the Apple II, which obviously influenced the PC industry as we know it today.
Yeah, I was a Commodore guy. Not being rich and all.
