As part of the celebration of the 30 years of the company, Apple has added a special section to its App Store, with a collection of applications that "capture the spirit of what makes the platform extraordinary." The section is called "Happy Birthday, Mac".

The section has quick links to apps available at App Store, like iLife programs, iPhoto, OS X and its Pro series such as Logic Pro X and Final Cut Pro. The new section also offers several popular "Great Games" and "Amazing Apps."

The special birthday section has also a link to a special section on the Apple's website which describes the use of various models of Mac over the years by respected artists and other creative professionals. The section is called The 30-year history of the Mac,

The original Macintosh 128K was first released on January 24, 1984. After 30 years of hardware and software advancements, iMac still surprisingly similar to its original.

As iFixIt's celebratory teardown shows, in spite of all Apple's computers design twists and turns, the 30-year-old computer shares construction and other features with the latest models of iMac.

The system design has changed significantly, particularly by becoming more compact and by adopting new CPU platforms. Nevertheless, what really outlines Macintosh experience is its software environment. The OS is more user-friendly and it provides new, but at the same time familiar, approach to computing. However, while we identify Mac with its the OS, it is the applications that are created for the platform that explore users’ capabilities.  With right apps, a user can do almost anything, fast, efficiently and with great results. That is the reason Apple designed a special birthday section with the apps that can help users maximize their Mac experience.
