Macintosh Quadra 610

The Macintosh Quadra 610 contained two different CPUs (Motorola and Intel) that worked independently, allowing you to run Macintosh and DOS (or Windows) applications simultaneously – and copy and paste data between the two environments. MS-DOS version 6.2 is installed on the hard drive, along with the Macintosh operating system (system software version 7.1). You can view the original specifications of the Macintosh Quadra 610 at the Apple support site.
