The Power Macintosh 7100

Send Article to a Friend

The Power Macintosh 7100 can display up to 32,768 different colors at a 640 x 480 display resolution with 1 MB of VRAM, not 16.7 million colors, as incorrectly stated on electronic data sheets. Apple corrected the error on the printed version of the data sheets before distributing them a few months ago, but the version on the Apple Reference, Performance and Learning Expert CD (ARPLE), and on eWorld has the error.
