A PowerPC-based Performa

A PowerPC-based Performa model joins Apple’s lineup of consumer-oriented Macintosh models this week. The Macintosh Performa 6100 series machines sport a 60 MHz PowerPC 601 processor (as does the Power Macintosh 6100/60), and all configurations will include an Apple Multiple Scan 15 display, tray-loading CD-ROM drive, and Global Village’s new TelePort Gold II modem. Various models (the 6110CD, 6112CD, 6115CD, 6117CD, and 6118CD) differ in hard drive size and bundled software; each chain of retail outlets will offer one or two configurations. [MHA]
