Macintosh Quadra 700

332 bytes added, 30 June
The Macintosh Quadra 700 is powered by a [[Motorola 68040]] processor. This is a popular model for hobbyists and prices on the used market tend to be high compared to other models.
It was the first in a new family of Macs, and was the first Mac to ship in a tower case (a IIcx case on its side, with the label rotated 90 degrees). The Quadra 700 was priced at $6,000.
=General Information=
The Macintosh Quadra 700 includes several advanced features that provide improved performance over that of members of the Macintosh II computer family. Foremost of those features are the Motorola MC68040 microprocessor and built-in video display hardware. The MC68040 has several built-in features, including data and instruction caches, a memory management unit (MMU), and a floating-point unit (FPU). The computer’s built-in video hardware provides 24-bit color and performance approaching that of the Macintosh Display Card 8•24GC.
Codenames: Shadow, Spike, IIce, Evo. Introduced in October 1991 and discontinued in March 1993. Originally shipped with system software 7.0.1.
