If you’re looking to buy a new Power Mac, but you really can’t afford the pricey 604e processor, you may really want to consider what Power Computing has to offer!

What’s Inside
The PowerBase 240 features a PowerPC 603e processor running at 240Mhz, a 256K Level 2 cache, 16 Mb of EDO (Extended Data Out) RAM, 2 Mb of VRAM, a 1.2 GB IDE hard drive, and an 8x CD-ROM drive. This also includes the keyboard and mouse. The PowerBase also comes with a great first-rate software package, making this computer a steal at $2095.
