=Overview=
 +
The Macintosh IIci personal computer offers high perform­ance and enhanced functionality in a system with the same small footprint and flexible design as the [[Macintosh IIcx]]. People who require high-speed program execution for large spreadsheets, databases, and graphically intensive applications will appreciate the performance delivered by the Macintosh IIci.

A 25-megahertz 68030 micro­ processor makes the most significant contribution to the dramatic performance improve­ment offered by the Macintosh Ilci. Increasing the clock speed of the 68030 enables the system to perform up to 45 percent faster than the [[Macintosh IIcx]] and [[Macintosh IIx]] computers. To speed the processing of complex mathematical functions, a 68882 math coprocessor comes standard with the Macintosh IIci. By installing an optional cache memory card, users can improve system performance by an addi­tional 20 percent to 30 percent, for an overall performance improve­ment of up to 75 percent over that of the Macintosh IIx and IIcx.

The Macintosh IIci also comes with built-in video capability that enables the system to display up to 256 colors or shades of gray simultaneously on a variety of Apple color and gray-scale monitors.
 +
 +
The Macintosh IIci includes three internal [[NuBus]] expansion slots, space for a 3.5-inch internal hard disk drive, seven standard external ports to accommodate peripherals, and the capability of expanding RAM to up to 8 mega­bytes. The Macintosh IIci uses the 1.4-megabyte Apple FDHD SuperDrive which allows it to read from and write to 3.5-inch Macintosh floppy disks, as well as the 3.5-inch disks used by many other personal computers.

 +
The Macintosh IIci is compat­ible with virtually all Macintosh applications, and comes standard with Apple's [[MultiFinder]] operat­ing system and [[HyperCard]] a tool for custom software solutions.
