For a lot of people, an Apple was special because their school had a pile of them, well equipped.

True for me.

Most of us got something else at home. For me that was an Atari, but I wanted an Apple. The Atari had fun chips and it was fast. But the Apple, well equipped, was a workstation, and that little difference meant a lot to some people. Others not so much.

Depends on games, programming, etc...
