The Macintosh IIvx, code named Brazil, was a desktop computer that was developed by Apple Computer and released on October 19, 1992 as the final model of the Macintosh II series.


The IIvx featured a 32 MHz Motorola 68030 processor, three NuBus slots, and a processor direct slot. The internal storage options included a 40, 16, or 400 MB hard drive. It was the first Macintosh computer to feature an internal CD-ROM drive. However, its performance was hampered by a slow 16 MHz system bus.[1]


A variant of the IIvx was marketed in the consumer market as the Macintosh Performa 600. Early adopters were disappointed by the introduction of the less expensive and more capable Macintosh Centris 650 only 4 months later, followed by a price drop of $2,949 to $1,899 on the list price of the IIvx. This led to the derisive term of being "IIvx-ed".[1]
