I am not sure what you mean by Mathematica II?
Mathematica 1 was, of course, from the start available on numerous  
platforms, though it is possible that the Mac version might have been  
the earliest by a small margin. I remember being told that Wolfram  
wanted Apple to bundle Mathematica with Mac IIs but Apple refused and  
instead Steve Jobs did it with the first Next work stations.
The first part of the above is only a rumour I heard in those days so  
I do not guarantee its truth but the second was definitely true.
Of course Mac and Next were the only systems with a graphical front  
end for Mathematica in those early days.
