Macintosh Color Classic


The Color Classic was the first compact Macintosh with a color display. It essentially combined the Macintosh LC II with an all-new, all-in-one compact Mac case design utilizing a 16 MHz Motorola 68030 processor, 4 MB RAM, expandable VRAM, and LC PDS expansion slot. Due to it’s low specs and good looks, it became a favorite with the hacking scene spurring “Mystic”, ‘Takki”, “Taco” and other modifications to bring more power to the color compact.

This Color Classic was a generous gift from a member f the Low End Mac Swap List and my friend who shipped it to me from across the country. It features 10 MB RAM, an 80 GB internal SCSI hard disk drive and an LC PDS slot ethernet card. It boots into Mac OS 7.1.
