Delivering on its promise to raise the Macintosh performance ceiling as PowerPC technology improves, Apple today introduced the Power Macintosh 8100/110. The new Mac incorporates a 110 MHz version of the PowerPC 601 processor and costs $6,379.

Apple expects quantities of the new model, available in a single configuration with 16 MB of RAM, a 2 GB hard drive, and built-in CD-ROM drive (item M3561LL/A), will be limited for the first few weeks. Those who must have the fastest possible computer, however, may find the unit worth waiting for. The new model will crunch numbers about a third faster than earlier Power Macintosh 8100/80 models.

The Power Mac 8100/110 will be aimed at high-end computing users such as publishing, technical, and multimedia software users. All current configurations of the 8100/80 model will remain available. No 8100/110 logic board upgrade is planned at this time.
