The Color Classic is the last model of the Macintosh's original compact style. The successor was then the larger Macintosh LC 500 and Power Macintosh 5200
The name of the system is printed on the front on a removable front. This allows the correct spelling for the other markets (Colour Computer) as well as if it has a faster processor (33 MHz instead of 16 MHz) and it actually becomes a Color Classic II.
The Color Classic was not really a great success. The computer came out in 1993 and performed slowly for the processor that the computer has. The addition of color to a Macintosh had also been done a few years earlier with the Macintosh II, which were usually also used with monitors larger than 10". The computer also turned out to be very pricey ($1400) so all in all, a slow computer with a small display for a lot of money.
These days they are hard to come by, mainly because the battery can do a lot of damage if not removed in time.
