Macintosh LC

Introduced: October 1990
Terminated: March 1992


Aiming for personal use computer buyers, the Macintosh LC had a 68020 processor running at speeds of up to 16Mhz.  A component based set-up, it was the first color Macintosh marketed to the home consumer.

To keep costs low, the Macintosh LC did not have NuBus slots or a floating point coprocessor.  The limited RAM and VRAM meant that, as shipped, it could only support a resolution of 12 pixels by 384 pixels at 8-bit color.  An upgrade to the VRAM made 512 pixels by 384 pixels at 16-bit color possible.


The first affordable color Macintosh sold very well at $2,400.  The Processor Direct Slot allowed for the insertion of an emulation card that allowed the computer to run Apple IIe, a selling point for educational clients.

  • I assumed my entire life was well over. Being alive devoid of the solutions to the difficulties you’ve resolved as a result of your entire site is a serious case, as well as the kind which could have in a negative way affected my entire career if I had not discovered the website. Your personal natural talent and kindness in dealing with almost everything was helpful. I’m not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t come upon such a point like this. I am able to at this point relish my future. Thanks so much for your high quality and effective help. I will not hesitate to propose your web site to any individual who needs to have counseling on this problem. prom dresses
