The Quadra 700 was powered by a 25 Mhz 68040 processor, which included an FPU. It was the first in a new family of Macs, and was the first Mac to ship in a tower case (a IIcx case on its side, with the label rotated 90 degrees). The Quadra 700 was priced at $6,000

This Mac is one of my all time faves - it's VERY fast for an 040, runs Linux, internet apps with ease. The only caveat is that it ony has 4 memory slots for 30 pin simms which means you are limited to 20 megs of ram unlss you can find 8 or 16 meg 30 pin simms which are extremely hard to find and expensive. Use Ram Doubler and SpeedDoubler to allow you to run more apps.
The 700 can run older version of Photoshop, Illustrator, PageMaker albeit slowly.
