Apple Macintosh Performa 5500/225
The Apple Power Macintosh 5500/225, based on the Gazelle architecture, features a 225 MHz PowerPC 603e processor, 32 MB of RAM, a 2.0 GB hard drive, and 2D/3D graphics acceleration in an attractive all-in-one case with a 15" color monitor. Originally, this model was sold only to the North American education market, but Apple finally realized that many people not in education also would like an all-in-one model and released it to the consumer market as well.
The 5500 was the second PCI-bus Power Mac with an integrated monitor; it replaced the slower 5400. It shipped in 225 and 250 MHz versions and was available in black in the UK (the education version was known as the Power Macintosh ONE in the UK). A black 250 MHz "Director's Edition" was available in Australia.
The 5500/225 was introduced 17/02/1997
CPU: 225MHz PPC 603e
