  • The Power Macintosh 6200 is a series of mid-range personal computers that are a part of Apple Computer’s Power Macintosh and Macintosh Performa series of Macintosh computers. The 6200’s naming conventions confused many; in addition to the many Performa variants, it also includes model numbers above 6300 (which would normally indicate a different model). The model numbers above 6260 use a PowerPC 603e processor, but are otherwise virtually identical. Finally, some computers with model numbers that indicate they belong to the 6200/6300 family (the above-mentioned Power Macintosh 6300/160 and its Performa version 6360) are rather different on the inside. Few of Apple’s models are quite confusing when it comes with their names. GAR Labs

  • I think this Power Macintosh was good when it was in use, more than 10 years a go. Asigurare locuinta

  • Replica watches are the facsimile or prototype of their real counterparts. They are made following the exact designs and looks of the original watches. The difference lies in the material used to make them. Unlike Breitling Replica. Omega Replica, original watches are made of genuine stuffs like gold and platinum and are studded with real diamonds, as well.
    However, materials used to make Replica Tag Heuer Watches are worthwhile. They do not appear inferior to the original watch either in grandeur or longevity. Replica Rolex Watches  on the other hand belong to a category which at best can be called cheap and unworthy. They never give you your desired level of satisfaction. A fake watch is never an exact replacement of a designer or branded watc

  • I agree the Power Macintosh was a great time and ahead of its competition 10 years ago. However, Apple still is ahead of it’s rivals today in many different markets. Living Room Decorating Ideas
