Macintosh Quadra 700

The Quadra 700 was introduced in 1991 alongside the Quadra 900, and the first Apple computer to be using a mini-tower case.

The Quadra 700 was largely the same as the Apple Macintosh II CX and the Macintosh II CI

Is it a Quadra? An LC? A Performa?

In 1993 Apple made the decision to rename their Macintosh computers. They introduced three different product names, based on the target audiences. The result of this is that many Macintosh machines are exact duplicates of each other, but just with a different brand name.

  • Quadra line - Business Customers, sold only through Apple resellers.
  • LC line - Education market, sold primarily to schools.
  • Performa - Home consumers, sold in department and electronics stores.

Example: The Macintosh Quadra 605 is the same computer as the Macintosh LC 475 and the Macintosh Performa 475.
