Apple Power Mac

The Apple Power Mac is a line of high-end tower style workstation-class computers. Apple targeted the Power Mac primarily at businesses and creative professionalsThe core of the Power Mac is based on various models of the PowerPC microprocessors that Apple developed in 1994. The first models were badged Power Macintosh 6100, 7100, and 8100, and offered CPU speeds ranging from 60 to 110 MHz. These computers replaced Apple's Quadra series of personal computers. In 1997 the first third-generation ("G3") Power Macintosh was introduced, using the PowerPC 750 processor. From this model onward, Apple Computer no longer used a numbering scheme to identify their Power Mac models, and instead referred to their Personal Computers by their PowerPC processor generation number (i.e. G3, G4, and G5). Later models based on the same generation of PowerPC processor relied on descriptive characteristics to differentiate them, e.g. the color scheme ("Power Macintosh G3 - Blue and White") or a technical feature of a particular model ("Power Mac G4 - Gigabit Ethernet"). Apple used this same identification scheme in the iMac, PowerBook, and iBook lines of Macintosh computers.

The Power Mac went on to become the mainstay of Apple's top-end offerings through 2006. The Power Mac went through several case designs and four major generations of PowerPC chips. Some Power Mac G4 and G5 models were offered in dual-processor configurations. In August 2006 at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference, Steve Jobs and Phil Schiller announced the retirement of the Power Mac and the start of the Mac Pro line of personal computers.

The Intel-based successor of the Power Mac is named the Mac Pro. Apple also renamed their professional notebooks from PowerBook to MacBook Pro. The successor to the All-In-One Power Macintosh models (5x00 series), the last of which was the Power Macintosh G3 All-In-One, was re-branded the iMac, which has continued through the Intel CPU transition to the present.

Prior to the Power Mac name change, certain Power Macintosh models were sold as lower-cost re-branded models dubbed the Macintosh LC and Macintosh Performa. Other past Macintosh lines which used PowerPC processors include the PowerBook 5300, the Apple iMac, Apple iBook and the Xserve.
