The eagerly-anticipated Macintosh PowerBook 180c, introduced in June 1993, was the first PowerBook to have an active-matrix color screen. Its size, though more compact, was the same, resolution-size, to a 14-inch Apple display of the day.
Expensive, at USD 4,160 to begin with, the PowerBook 180c nevertheless proved to be popular for quite a while, during its brief 8-month tenure on the market.
This PowerBook was also increasingly bulky, at 7.1 pounds. It was powered by a Motorola 68030 chip running at 33 MHz.
