A New Performa & New Performa Pricing -- In anticipation of the holiday buying season, Apple last week announced Performa price reductions of up to $500. The biggest drop hit the Performa 6220CD, which now starts at about $2,000 for 16 MB of RAM, a quad-speed CD-ROM, a 1 GB hard disk, plus a modem, TV tuner, and software bundle. Apple also announced the Performa 6300CD, featuring a 100 MHz PowerPC 603e processor with 256K Level 2 cache, a 28.8 internal modem, a 15-inch monitor with built-in speakers, 16 MB of RAM and a 1.2 GB hard disk. The Performa 6300CD will debut at the high end of the Performa line, starting around $2,800. [GD]
