Joe Rossignol beat me to this, but he summed the original machine up nicely over on MacRumors:
The original Macintosh was priced at $2,495 in the United States, equivalent to just over $6,000 today, and was a big deal because of its graphical user interface rather than command-line interface. Tech specs included an 8 MHz Motorola 68000 processor, 128 KB of RAM, and a 400 KB floppy disk drive.
This tiny machine changed the world. Happy birthday, Mac!
