Macintosh Quadra 700
This is a popular model for hobbyists and prices on the used market tend to be high compared to other models.
VRAM expansion includes 3 banks of 2 VRAM slots (6 total found on the board). There is 512KB VRAM built-in to the logic board.
The Quadra 700 includes two NuBus expansion slots plus a Processor-Direct Slot (PDS) specifically for the PowerPC upgrade option.
There is a ROM slot found on the board but this is not required for normal operation.
- Unlike most other models of the time, the Quadra 700 does not require recapping on the logic board. The PRAM battery is a concern though and the original battery is known to leak over time, potentially damaging the board.
