Why Power Macintosh?
Glad you asked. Basically, it's because no other computer can compare in overall performance, creative capabilities, and ease of communication. The tight integration between hardware and software is complemented by high-speed RISC processing, network connectivity, PC compatibility, and PCI slots for easy expansion. Plus, the feature set, fully loaded for multimedia, allows you to express your ideas more creatively. But you can see all this for yourself by checking out our Benchmark ratings and hearing What People Are Saying! Once you've studied the nuts and bolts, you'll wonder: "Why anything but Power Macintosh?"
The look, the feel, the power are new, but the technology is richly familiar. Apple continues its leadership in design and performance by breaking the mold of the personal computer. The Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh. With its innovative casing, built-in TV and FM tuners, Bose stereo sound, and 3D-hardware acceleration, it's a showcase of what personal computing should be.
For performance of processor-intensive applications, such as color publishing, video-editing, and 3-D modeling, it doesn't get any better than the Power Macintosh 9600/233, Power Macintosh 9600/200 and Power Macintosh 9600/200MP. Inside the new easy-access tower, each of these top-of-the-line machines packs a high-speed processor, 32 MB of RAM, and a 4 GB hard drive, plus 6 PCI expansion slots, allowing for maximum customization.
With so many powerful, eye-popping media capabilities, the Power Macintosh 8600/200 is sure to make headlines. Built-in video input/output capabilities, a 64-bit VRAM graphics subsystem, a built-in Iomega Zip drive, and an AV-capable hard disk drive elevate technical renderings and multimedia projects to a new dimension. At the same time, this series' redesigned, easy-access tower takes the complication out of changing hard drive components.
Change is a constant in the business world. Fortunately, the Power Macintosh 7300/180 and the Power Macintosh 7300/200 are built to handle it. The removable processor card makes upgrades a simple matter of swapping components, and the PCI slots for more flexibility. The Power Macintosh 7300/180 PC Compatible comes already installed with PC Compatibility Card which lets you switch environments to DOS or Windows.
With only the essentials and a much lower pricetag, the Power Macintosh 4400/200 is the perfect fit for small businesses, educators, and individuals. The feature set--including a 200-megahertz RISC processor, built-in network connectivity, Internet access software, and room for expansion--sacrifices nothing in performance. Plus, the Power Macintosh 4400/200 PC Compatible has an additional processor for DOS and Windows, making this practical model even more versatile.
