The VisionPower PowerExpress 240, based on the Tanzania architecture co-developed by Apple and Motorola, features a 240 MHz PowerPC 603e processor, 8 MB of RAM, and a 1.0 GB hard drive in an industry-standard desktop case. The Tanzania logic board, in addition to standard ADB ports, provides PS/2 keyboard ports and an SVGA monitor port instead of the standard Mac monitor port. This model was sold throughout Asia, but since VisionPower does not have an official website, none of this information has been verified for accuracy.
