#25YearsofOWC Quiz Week 1 Recap

Last week at OWC, we kicked off the celebration of our 25th anniversary with the #25YearsofOWC Quiz on our official Facebook page. We had a great response in Week 1, and it turns out, OWC fans really do know their 1988 trivia!

Here are the questions posted during Week 1:

1. The Macintosh IIx released in 1988 with a 16 MHz CPU, 40-80 MB Hard Drive & a max of 128 RAM. What was its base price?

  • Answer: 25 years ago you could grab the top of the line Macintosh IIx for the low-low price of $7,769. Today, you can grab top of the line used Macs for a fraction of the price!

2. What was the top selling album of 1988?

  • Answer: Bad was the seventh studio album by Michael Jackson. It has been cited as one of the 20 best-selling albums of all time, sold around 30 million copies worldwide, and was NOT the top selling album in 1988; George Michael’s Faith was.

3. About how many Macintosh computers had Apple sold by 1988?

  • Answer: The installed base of Mac users reached 1 million in 1987. Not bad for something that was introduced only 3 years earlier.

4. Which of these games had their debut in 1988:

  1. Super Mario Bros. 3
  2. Final Fantasy II
  3. Mega Man II
  4. Double Dragon II
  • Answer: All of them.

Without further ado … this week’s winners are Tim C., Frank H., Ringo S., and Scott M.!
