Sold initially for a whopping price of $5369 US, the IIci was actually sold for almost 4 years. It uses a 68020 processor running at 25 MHz (the model here has been upgraded with an accelerator) it used the NuBus standard for expansion cards. This allowed for things such as an additional video card with a second display (shown here). Because of its SCSI bus the IIci could be expanded with external hard drives, CD-ROM drives, and other SCSI devices such as scanners. The machine had good success and is still considered a fan favorite.

Neither the IIsi, nor the IIci used the '020. Both were '030 machines. Only machines that did were the original II and the LC. The si ran at 20 MHz, and the ci at 25 MHz. The 20 MHz chip can run at 25, with the replacement of the 40 MHz oscillator on the board with a 50 MHz version.

Hello, One small note. The IIsi had the 68020 and the IIci used the 68030@25MHz with FPU. I used to sell both back in the day as an "Apple Technical Specialist" and owned a IIci via the Apple Educational discount program they extended to recent course finishers. Fantastic site. Please keep up the wonderful work. Andrew Gustafson Burlington, ON
