Apple Macintosh SE/30

The image is clickable


Apple Macintosh SE/30 was actually an Apple II"x" computer in a compact Mac 128/SE shell. It was a successor to Apple Macintosh SE. SE/30 was named by the number "-30" in the processor name Motorola MC 68030.

This new Mac SE, however, had some limited restrictions in the use of RAM. In order to have any benefit from the more than 8 MB RAM installed, you had to install some complementary stuff, to expand it from 24 bit to 32 which could handle more RAM. Without it, you could only see 8 MB of RAM no matter how much you had installed. The new video RAM of 64 KB did not slow down the RAM.

Otherwise, there was a new disk drive, which could read high-density floppies on 1,44 MB. There was now a hard drive by default in SE. You had the possibility of adding a video card which allowed colour on a separate display.

Is there any errors? e-mail and correct me!
