Tim Cook Speaks With ABC News About Thirtieth Anniversary of Macintosh, Interview Airs Tomorrow

ABC News will air an interview with Apple CEO Tim Cook on World News with Diane Sawyer tomorrow evening to coincide with the thirtieth anniversary of the introduction of the Macintosh (via 9to5Mac).

The interview, between ABC's David Muir and Cook, will air tomorrow at 6:30PM Eastern, though a small portion of the interview will preview on Good Morning America.

Tim Cook ABC Interview

ABC has not shared many details about the interview, but based on the image shown above, the Mac Pro will be a point of discussion. "ABC News Anchor David Muir exclusively interviews Apple CEO Tim Cook on the 30th anniversary of the Macintosh and what is next for the company," ABC says.

In 2012, Tim Cook sat down with Brian Williams for a wide ranging interview that covered Apple's poor mapping debut, Apple's future in television and more. The interview is part of a larger media campaign by the company to promote the thirtieth anniversary of the Macintosh's debut.

I wonder how a 1984 Mac and a current Mac Pro would look next to each other? $2499 vs $2999, so, after adjusting for 30 years of inflation, the new Pro is actually the cheaper buy.

But no monitor, mouse or keyboard. :D

It would be more appropriate to compare against an iMac, as the original Macintosh included a display. And a mouse. And a keyboard.

The current base-level iMac is $1,299.

Adjusting for inflation, the original Macintosh would cost $5594 (in 2013 dollars). So Macs today are incredible values by comparison.

To compare the new Mac Pro ($2999), we should compare the most badass Mac from the 80s era, the Macintosh IIfx (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macintosh_IIfx). The IIfx (I'll leave it to you, dear readers, to figure out what we thought the initials stood for) retailed for $9,900 in 1990.

Adjusting for inflation, the Mac IIfx would cost $17,646 in 2013 dollars. So those of you whining about Mac Pro prices, just keep in mind what pros used to spend on Macs.
