Apple Macintosh LC III+ The Apple Macintosh LC III+ features a 33 MHz 68030 processor, 4 MB of RAM, and either an 80 MB or a 160 MB hard drive in a compact, easy-to-upgrade "pizza box" case.

The Macintosh LC III+ is a modest upgrade of the LC III before it, with a faster processor and an optional FPU, but also a new, sleeker case design with a smooth and curved front, more rounded "foot" and finger indentations above and below the "mouth" of the floppy disk drive.
