Macintosh IIci


Just six months after releasing the Macintosh IIcx, Apple released the Macintosh IIci (i for improved?). Using the same compact case as the Macintosh IIcx the Macintosh IIci brought a faster processor, upgradeable Level 2 cache, built-in video and a “32-bit clean” ROM allowing for more than 8 MB RAM.

The Macintosh IIci featured a 25 MHz Motorola 68030 processor, 1 MB or 4 MB RAM, a 40 MB or 80 MB SCSI hard disk drive, 1.44 MB floppy disk drive and an optional cache card. Expansion came from the three NuBus slots, serial, ADB and external SCSI ports.

This Macintosh IIci features 8 MB RAM, a 50 MB hard disk drive and is featured with an Apple Portrait display. It boots to System 6.0.5. I received it with a mystery logic board problem from an LEM Swap List member.
