"Introduced in April 1984, the Apple IIc was the first compact model in the Apple lineup. It came in a small white case, and was built around an enhanced 65C02 processor, running at 1.4 MHz. It had 128 kB RAM, (expandable to 1 MB) a built-in 5.25" floppy drive on the side, and could be used with a mouse. The Apple IIc+ came with a 4 MHz 65C02, RAM expandable to over 1 MB, a larger ROM, and an optional internal 800 KB 3.5" drive. The Apple IIc+ was discontinued in November 1990."
