The end of the Classic line in the North American market, the Color Classic shared the motherboard design of the LC II, equally limited in RAM expansion, constricted by a 16-bit data bus, and able to use PDS cards designed for the LC series. The Color Classic's claim to fame was a tiny 10" 512x384 pixel color monitor and Apple IIe emulation with an add-in card.
Unlike other compact Macs, the Color Classic can be shut down with the power key on the keyboard. The Color Classic is also turned on with the keyboard power key.
The Color Classic was the first Mac with a built-in color monitor, although the odd screen size meant many games would not run on it.
