Apple Computers

Welcome to my Apple collection.

This page is a repository for all of the Apple systems, peripherals, and accessories in my collection – it’s currently a work-in-progress, and I’ll continue to add things as and when I have the time.

Apple Macintosh Classic

TypeHome computer
Release dateOctober 1990
DiscontinuedSeptember 1992
Operating systemSystem 6.0.3
CPUMotorola 68000 @ 8 MHz
Memory1 MB (4 MB max.)

The Macintosh Classic was a personal computer designed, manufactured, and sold by Apple Computer, Inc. It was the first Macintosh to sell for less than US$1,000. Production of the Classic was prompted by the success of the original Macintosh (128k), then the Macintosh Plus, and finally the Macintosh SE. The specification of the Classic is similar to its predecessors, with the same 9-inch monochrome CRT display and 4 MB memory limit.

Apple Macintosh Classic II

TypeHome computer
Release dateOctober 1991
DiscontinuedOctober 1993
Operating systemSystem 7.6.1
CPUMotorola 68030 @ 16 MHz
Memory2 MB (10 MB max.)

The Macintosh Classic II (also sold as the Performa 200) is a personal computer designed, manufactured and sold by Apple Computer, Inc. Like the Macintosh SE/30, the Classic II featured a 16 MHz Motorola 68030 CPU and 40 or 80 MB HDD, but in contrast to the SE/30, it was limited by a 16-bit data bus (the SE/30 had a 32-bit data bus) and a 10 MB memory ceiling. The slower data bus resulted in the Classic II being 30% slower than the SE/30.

Apple Macintosh LC III

TypeHome computer
Release dateFebruary 1993
DiscontinuedFebruary 1994
Operating systemSystem 7.1
CPUMotorola 68030 @ 25 MHz
Memory4 MB (36 MB max.)

The Macintosh LC III is a personal computer designed, manufactured, and sold by Apple Computer. It replaced the successful Macintosh LC II in Apple’s line-up of mid-class computers, and was both significantly faster and significantly less expensive. The LC III was sold primarily to educational institutions, and a corresponding Performa variant called the Performa 450 was sold to the consumer market.

The video cable uses a standard Macintosh DA-15 video connector and the maximum resolution is 1024×768.
