The Power Macintosh 4400, code named "Cupid", was introduced in the United States by Apple Computer on February 17, 1997 with a 200 MHz PowerPC 603ev processor. It was released on the same day in Australia as the Power Macintosh 7220. A slower version with a 160 MHz PowerPC 603e had first been released in Europe on November 7, 1996.

Features[]

The Power Macintosh 4400/7220 is a desktop based on the low-cost "Tanzania" architecture that was designed for Macintosh clone manufacturers. It contains a unique riser card with 3 slots that can accept a 7" PCI card, a 12" PCI card and a Comm Slot II card. It also features an L2 cache slot that can be used as a processor direct slot to upgrade it to a PowerPC G3 processor.[1] An optional PC Compatible version contained a daughtercard with a Cyrix 6x86-P166 processor to allow natively booting into Windows.
