On September 1, 1992, Apple introduced the Apple Performa Display as part of their Apple Display series. This 14-inch Color RGB Monitor offered a 67 dpi screen with resolutions up to 640 x 480 pixels, 32,000 colors, and a DA-15 video connection. Designed specifically for the Macintosh Performa 400, the display was a powerful addition to Apple’s lineup.
However, the Apple Performa Display was not meant to be a long-term addition to the company’s offerings. On July 18, 1994, the display was discontinued, and today, 30 years later, it remains a piece of Apple’s history.
While the Apple Performa Display may no longer be available for purchase, its introduction in 1992 marked a significant moment in the company’s history. The display’s advanced technology and sleek design were a testament to Apple’s commitment to innovation and design.
Today, Apple continues to push the boundaries of display technology with their Retina displays and ProMotion technology. However, the Apple Performa Display will always hold a special place in the company’s history and in the hearts of Apple enthusiasts.
