This hi-end Mac was one of the first to use the new Motorola 68040
processor and was the first Macintosh to have built-in Ethernet.
Retailing for $6000 US at launch, this one was targeted towards
professional graphic artists that needed the extra power and speed
that was offered. 4MB of RAM was standard and the machine could
be expanded to a total of 68MB. The machine ran at 25 MHz and
could display graphics at an impressive 1152x870 resolution. The
production cycle however, didnít make it past the two year mark.

Alice McGregor on Monday, May 7, 2007 My father, just over the #1000 mark for worldwide developers, was given a Quadra 700 for development purposes. It was by far the best 68K Macintosh we've ever owned and lasted for a very, very long time. The vast majority of my memories of color gaming and multimedia were on this Quadra.
