Mac Systems: Apple: Macintosh Performa Series

Apple's Macintosh Performa series was sold from September 1992 to August 1997.

The Performa line consisted primarily of repackaged Macs from other lines with consumer-friendly configurations and software bundles. Unfortunately, many consumers were confused by subtle and often insignificant differences between models, sometimes varying only by the location sold.
