Macintosh Performa 6218CD
The Apple Macintosh Performa 6218CD computer brings multimedia to life in a modular system that’s easy to set up. And with its PowerPC processor-based technology, it offers high performance now, yet can grow with your multimedia and general computing needs for years to come.
Packed in one box are the computer (with Apple’s System 7.5 operating software already loaded), a color display, a keyboard, and a mouse. In addition, the Performa 6218CD comes with a variety of home, education, and home-business programs, plus CD multimedia titles —just a sampling of the thousands of Macintosh applications the computer can run.
This affordable system includes features that are expensive add-ons with other computers. A quadruple-speed CD-ROM drive accesses CD-based data quickly. Stereo 16-bit sound provides high-quality playback from audio CDs. An audio-input port lets you record your own sounds. An internal 14.4-kilobits-per-second data and electronic fax modem with full-duplex speakerphone and digital answering machine allows you to communicate in new ways.
Every Performa 6218CD system also offers advanced multimedia expansion options. With a video-in card, you can connect to an external video source, such as a VCR or camcorder, to capture video images and use them in your Macintosh applications. A video-out interface box lets you connect the computer to a large-screen TV for presentations. And the optional internal TV tuner shows television channels in a window on your computer’s display.
The eWorld on-line service option has been replaced by America Online. 6218CD customers can open the bundled eWorld application and connect via the modem to a server where they can download or order the America Online software.
