I have a Performa PowerPc G2(603e)!


I don't know if the Mac @ the university is similar. On the model is clearly written PowerPc. It can also be an early G3. If you like macs @ the university you have 2 choose this one or written hybride.

PowerMacs are not always G3/G4/G5 processors. The first PowerMacs were 601, then I think 603/603e, then 604. Then they went to G3/G4/G5.

As far as I know, there were no G3 Performas from Apple. There might be upgrades though.

Hope that helps :)

He said G2 not G3 ;)
I think he is lumping 603-604 into G2 and 601 are G1

I have a 7200 G1 at 90 MHz. Does anybody knows if it can be accelerated ?

BTW the 601 and 604 were released before the 603.


I think that it isn't a Gosshamer, but it is original Apple.
