powerbook duo 2300c

The first powerpc duo, the 2300c was announced in August 1995. Powered by a 100 MHz 603e processor, the 2300c sold for $3,700 for 8/750, and $4,700 for 20/1.1 GB and an internal 14.4 Kbps internal modem.

It was discontinued in early 1997, leaving a distinct lack of mac sub-notebook machines which eventually would be filled by the powerbook 2400c.
