Most say it 'ignited' the personal computer revolution in 1977 (the word 'ignited' is most often used, for some peculiar reason of human semantics and memory).

The first mass-marketed personal computer, with a plastic case and with colour graphics.

The Apple I was a year earlier, but was not exactly ground-breaking (and didn't have colour).
