Macintosh LC


At A Glance

Released in October 1990 at a cost of US$2,400 and featuring a 16-megahertz 68020 processor, the Macintosh LC was touted as the lowest-cost color capable Macintosh. Successors would include the LC II and LC III. It had built in support for three of Apple’s external monitors – the Macintosh 12″ RGB Display, 12″ Monochrome Display and the AppleColor High Resolution RGB monitor – which meant it did not need a dedicated video card.
