Product Specifications

Depending on your needs and cost considerations, you can choose the Power Macintosh 8500/150 or the 8500/180 that feature fast and powerful processors. Both high-performance systems make an ideal choice for in-house publishing, media authoring, and technical applications - and because they're processor-upgradeable, they protect your investment for the future. Built-in near-broadcast-quality video-input/output capabilities, high-resolution graphics, an 8x-speed CD-ROM drive, and CD-quality stereo sound add vitality to professional projects and - with Apple's QuickTime software - make media authoring easy. The three industry-standard Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) high-performance expansion slots on these systems let you customize them easily to meet your needs more precisely. You can find PCI cards for a variety of uses, including graphics, storage, and high-speed networking. And if you want to use your Power Macintosh 8500/150 or 8500/180 to run MS-DOS and Windows applications as well as software written for the Macintosh, you can install a PC Compatibility Card from Apple in one of the PCI slots - and switch instantly between computing environments. Connecting your Power Macintosh 8500/150 or 8500/180 computer to an Ethernet network is easy because it includes both AAUI and 10BaseT connectors. If you install an optional PC Compatibility Card, you can connect from both the card and the Macintosh logic board simultaneously, for incredibly versatile networking capabilities. Today, more and more computer users are discovering the wealth of information and communications resources and opportunities offered by the Internet. The Power Macintosh 8500/150 and 8500/180 make it easy to get involved in this rapidly expanding community, because they come with all of the software you need for easy Internet access.
