Apple Mac Performa 588CD

The Apple Macintosh Performa 588CD features a 33 MHz 68LC040 processor, 8 MB of RAM, and a 500 MB hard drive in a relatively-compact all-in-one case with a 14" color display. The Performa 588CD appears to be identical to the Performa 580CD, but perhaps varied by software bundle. This model was sold in Asia and Europe, but the educational version, the LC 580, was sold worldwide.

Notes:

1. This model is sometimes designated as having a 66 MHz processor,
since the clock input runs at 66 MHz. However, the processor itself
is not "clock doubled", so technically it is only a 33 MHz processor.

2.
1 MB of built-in 60 ns DRAM is dedicated to video function.
3. Second SIMM slot only uses single-sided SIMMs (1, 4, 16 MB).
4. 14" Sony Trinitron RGB display.
5. In inches, height x width x depth.
