This index cover the Macintosh LC series, Apple’s first low-cost color Macs. (68040-based LCs are also listed on the Quadra page.) The LC series was one of the most popular in Apple’s history.
At 33 MHz, the LC III+ (also known as the Performa 460) was the fastest 68030-based computer in the LC series.
This relatively rare variant of the LC 630 includes a DOS card with an Intel 486DX2/66 CPU, although some shipped with a Cyrix 486/70. The DOS Compatibility card can share Mac motherboard memory or use its own dedicated RAM.
“With double its predecessor’s speed and more than triple the RAM capacity, the LC III is a significant entry into the low end of Apple’s line.” MacUser, April 1993
