Subject: Mac-Types-6a.txt 

Here is a semi-complete list of the various Macintosh models in the world 
as of February 1993.  I've changed the format a little, and the next version
will have to change again, but it is still readable and has more 
information than the version I posted in October.  This is version 6a.

footnotes: 
(A) Machines built after 1988 came w/FDHD drives instead of 800k drives.
(B) the IIci's PDS slot is for cache cards. (also called cache slot)
(C) Cache is built into motherboard CPU
(D) Bus runs slower than processor 
(E) Quadras have built in Ethernet ports, Centris' have opt. ethernet ports
(F) Duo & PB165c 9" screen has 640x400 dots, Color Classic 10" has 512x384 
(G) Duo's have 1 serial port that can be used for a modem or appletalk.
(H) 68000 based machines cannot do System 7's virtual memory
(I) 68020 based machines can do virtual mem. with a PMMU upgrade.
(*) machine has a 16bit databus instead of 32bit.

KEY TO CHART:
CPU:CPU speed in Mhz.F=FPU (math coprocessor) built in,f=socket for opt.FPU 

RAM:mn=min=RAM on motherboard, mx=max=RAM w/16meg SIMMs (if possible) 
  bank=banks of memory x number of SIMMS slots per bank.

SLOTS:N=NuBus,P=processor direct (card type depends on CPU model)

VIDEO:9 & 10 refers to the diagonal measurement(in inches) of screen
  9" screen has 512x342 dots. 10" screen has 640x400 dots,
  b=Black&White built in screen, c=Color built in screen
  l=supertwist backlit LCD (b&w), L=4 bit greyscale LCD, 
  a=active matrix LCD (b&w), A=4 bit greycale active matrix LCD, 
  p=passive matrix color LCD
  .25,.5,.75,1m,etc refers to the amount of VRAM in megs 
  (min and max) avail.for external monitors. 0k means the main memory is used. 
  8bit means external video supports 256 colors (unknown VRAM)

SOUND:(snd) n=no built in recording capacity. e=has microphone jack
  i=has internal microphone, M=mono sound output 
  S=stereo output s=mono, but will play stereo sound from CD player 

ADB: # of adb (keyboard) ports

SYS: minimum system needed (ex  608=6.0.8, 710=7.1, 701=7.0.1)

DRIVES:(drv) in=type of floppy drive included with machine. SS=only reads   
  single sided disks.DS=drive also reads double sided disks.HD=also reads 1.4 
  meg mac disks,as well as IBM disks. 
  ex=external disk drive ports,f=floppy,s=25 pin scsi port,h=HDI-30 pin scsi

LIFESPAN: Most of the dates come from a chart in MacUser.  The newer
  machine's start dates refer to the approximate announcement time.

misc. notes and oddities:

Items with question marks (?) indicate that I've heard this to be true,
but have no official apple document to prove it's true and can't actually
verify it myself.  Feel free to correct me on these items anytime.

The sound info will now be based on actual tests of stereo out as opposed
to the official apple sales babble.  (Haven't heard about new models, though)

New SIMM types have arrived, but I haven't figured out how to incorporate
that into the table.  Soon hopfully.

I think this format stretches the limits of an ascii table.  Any suggestions?
I'm considering moving the floppy drive info into a footnote.

Thanks to everybody at the University of Illinois and the readers of
comp.sys.mac.hardware who helped out.

I intend to keep this list current as well as to fill in the blanks, 
so please send any info or suggestions to me at daver@uiuc.edu
