Apple Computer introduces a new configuration of the Macintosh SE computer. SE 2/40 is the name of this new configuration that includes 2Mb RAM, 40Mb hard disk and 800Kb flexible disk.

In addition, it has a new computer, the Macintosh IIx, with a mathematical coprocessor 68882 and a first computer based on the processor 68030 of Motorola.

Macintosh IIx offers an interesting advantage: 3.5-inch disc drive that you can write and read in both MS-DOS and Apple II formats. This can be an important step in communication between computers.

So far, for example, the exchange of information between a PC and a Macintosh was based on intermediate programs, such as the MacLink program.

These intermediate programs require a physical connection between the two machines and although the text is often passed, the format is lost.

It is logical to think that with this new system we will not have this kind of discomfort and at worst we will also avoid physical connection.
