The Macintosh Performa 275 is a version of the Color Classic II that was rebranded by Apple Computer for the consumer market in Japan. It was sold as part of Apple's Performa line from October 1, 1993 until November 1, 1995.

Features[]

The Performa 275 was a compact Mac with a built-in 10" Trinitron display from Sony. It contained 256 KB of VRAM that could support up to 8-bit color at a resolution of 512 x 384 pixels; upgrading the VRAM to 512 KB would allow it to support up to 16-bit color. The logic board was comparable to (though not interchangable with) a Macintosh LC III+ with a 33 MHz 68030 processor and a 32-bit LC PDS slot. One 72-pin SIMM slot allowed RAM to be upgraded from the base 4 MB soldered onto the motherboard, to a maximum of 36 MB. Hard drives were connected through a SCSI bus. The built-in floppy drive supported 1.44 MB high-density disks.[1]

The Performa 250 came with KanjiTalk 7.1 pre-installed along with System Enabler 403. The last operating system that it supported was Mac OS 7.6.1.[1]
