The IIci is a popular model from the Macintosh II line due to the small form factor and upgrade options. Unlike the IIcx, the IIci features on-board video so you don't have to use up one of the [[NuBus]] slots for video.

Line 11: Line 18:     
The IIci has a special slot on the board for a cache card. No other Macintosh II model had this cache slot, though third-party cards such as the [[Applied Engineering QuickSilver]] offered cache via PDS. Similar to the board itself, the cache card will need to be re-capped due to the original ones failing from age.
