Mac Classic


Introduced in October 1990, the Classic came with 1MB of RAM, a SuperDrive, and space to mount an internal SCSI hard drive. RAM expansion was via a 1MB daughter card with two open slots, which could accept a pair of 256KB or 1MB SIMMs.

A new feature on the Classic was elimination of the brightness knob. Instead brightness was controlled with the Brightness control panel.

The Classic was the last Mac to use an 8MHz 68000 CPU.
