Mac LC 520 (Performa 520)

Take an LC III and graft on a 14″ Trinitron monitor along with stereo speakers. That’s what Apple did to create the 520.

LC 500 seriesWith the all-in-one design, these were especially popular in schools. It even had a built-in microphone, just like the Color Classic.

The Performa version was not sold in the US.

The 520 was replaced by the slightly faster 550 in February 1994.
