 Xerox introduced the Xerox 8010 Star Information System, the first commercial system utilizing a computer mouse, in April 1981. The 8010, geared towards business and sold for $20,000, was not a commercial success, so it wasn't until the Apple Macintosh in 1984 that the mouse became a mainstream, and essential, tool for computers.    


Have a great week and keep networking!
