      A word processor supports two display modes, one unformatted mode comprising display of a partial page and another formatted mode displaying format of an entire page of text. Both modes impose minimal burden on the display allowing use, for example, of standard display chips with a variety of monitors including a standard TV set or TV monitor. Born in the wake of the Apple ]['s success, the IBM Personal Computer (dubbed the "" in IBM's internal numbering system) was IBM's official entry into the desktop computer system market, and by far their most successful. Earlier attempts, like the desktop APL machine and the DisplayWriter word-processing machine, hadn't taken off, and IBM needed something fast to compete with Apple.
