The Apple II was the first "personal" desktop computer to achieve commercial success. In contrast to the Apple I, the main board was supplied in a plastic housing together with a keyboard, a monitor and software. The Apple Writer word processor and VisiCalc spreadsheet software were key to its success. The Apple II marked the start of Apple's rise to become the world's most successful company.
