The Power Macintosh 8100, when introduced in March 1994, was the top-end Power Mac in the series of first Power Macs introduced to the market. When it debuted, it was the fastest computer running at a then-blazing 80 MHz, with an additional 256K cache for added speed.

The outside look of the Power Macintosh 8100 is deceivingly close to a Macintosh Quadra 800. What's hidden inside is room: sufficient room for extra internal storage devices (such as hard drives, recordable media devices or CD-ROM players). Three NuBus slots accommodate for even more space.

Amazingly, the Power Mac 8100 arrived in hordes in mainland China, depriving the USA of a fair supply of 8100s.

An AV version (the Power Mac 8100/80AV) was released with a price tag exceeding USD 5,000. Apple later introduced a speedbumped version with chips clocking in at 100 MHz or 110 MHz.
