Apple -  Macintosh SE/30


The Macintosh SE/30 was introduced in 1989, it is the fastest in the black and white screen Macintosh series. The 30 in the name represented the Motorola 68030 CPU which ran at 15.667 MHz. The computer also had a Motorola 68882 Floating Point Unit (FPU).

The SE/30 came with 1MByte of RAM, and was upgradable to 128MByte using 30-pin SIMM sockets, which replaced the need for soldering RAM chips directly onto the motherboard or modules that would use piggyback-clips to connect.

The SE/30 came in a few different configurations:

  • 1MByte RAM, no HDD
  • 1MByte RAM, 40 MByte HDD
  • 4MByte RAM, 80 MByte HDD
