The Macintosh LC 580 was sold from April 3, 1995 to August 1, 1995.

The Apple Mac LC 580 featured a 33MHz 68LC040 processor and took 72 pin DIMMS. It externally resembled the LC 575, but was internally more similar to the LC 630, which added a Video I/O port that could accept Apple's TV tuner card, and replaced the internal SCSI hard disk with a less-expensive IDE version. The processor direct slot and Comm Slot for a modem or ethernet card was retained from earlier models. A Performa version was targeted at consumers, whereas the LC 580 was aimed at the education market.

The computer had a 32 bit processor on board and used system 7, allowing for virtual memory access. It shipped with 8MB ram on board and a 2x speed Apple 300i CD built in. A PowerPC 601 upgrade for it was marketed from April 3, 1995 to March 2, 1996.
