The Classic was more or less a reissue of the Mac Plus. It shipped in a newly designed case and had a large 512k ROM, which it could boot from. Most found it extremely slow. It sold for $1500.

*RAM expansion beyond 1MB requires Macintosh Classic 1MB Memory Expansion Card, which has 1MB of additional RAM, and two SIMM conectors.
