Herb's Mac Performa Systems

These systems are among Apple's oldest 68030 and 68040 products: yet a number of people still use them, or provide them to others. Fewer of these are appearing on the surplus market in 2003: this site may be your last opportunity to obtain replacment parts or "backup" systems.

Many of these Performas are the same as some non-Performa Mac systems. The "difference" among some systems was the size of the hard drive sold with them, or some software differences. Here is a list of what systems match (same case, logic or motherboard, CPU type and speed), followe by some links to where you can find them on my site. Check with Apple and other Mac sites for details about these various systems. I am not responsible for any errors or omissions in this list. Corrections are appreciated.

Performa 200 = Classic II
Performa 250 = Color Classic

Performa 400, 405, 410, 420, and 430 = LC II
Performa 450 = LC III (with 25MHz processor)
Performa 460, 466, and 467 = LC III+ (LC III with 33MHz processor)
Performa 475, 476 = Quadra 605
Performa 520 = LC 520
Performa 550, 560 = LC 550
Performa 575, 577, 578, 580, 588 = LC 575
Performa 600 = IIvi
Performa 630, 31, 635, 636, 637, 638, 640 = Quadra 630

Generally but not always, a "Performa" and a "Quadra" of the same number are the same system. Sometimes the difference between two systems is that one has a 68LC040 and the other has a 68040 processor; these processors are often removable and replacable. Again, check around the Web for details about all this.

My 68030 and 68040 systems can be found on the following pages:
Compact Macs from 128K to Plus to Classic
Mac LC series, and II-series systems systems,
Mac 68040 Quadra, Centris, Performas
