Macintosh Centris is a family of personal computers designed, manufactured and sold by Apple Computer, Inc. in 1992 and 1993. They were introduced as a replacement for the six-year-old Macintosh II family of computers; the name was chosen to indicate that the consumer was selecting a Macintosh in the center of Apple's product line. Centris machines were the first to offer Motorola 68040 CPUs at a price point around US$2,500, making them significantly less expensive (albeit slower) than Quadra computers, but also offering higher performance than the Macintosh LC computers of the time.

dbo:abstract
  • Macintosh Centris è una serie di computer Macintosh prodotti nel 1993 e basati sul Motorola 68LC040 o 68040. Questo nome è stato scelto per indicare al compratore che stava scegliendo un computer intermedio tra il Quadra e il Performa. Infatti il Centris costava meno del Quadra ma aveva prestazioni superiori a quelle offerte dal Performa. La serie venne inaugurata col Centris 610 e il Centris 650 presentati nel marzo del 1993. Sei mesi dopo la serie si arricchiva del Centris 660AV. Il nome "Centris" venne abbandonato dato che creava confusione negli utenti, Apple aveva troppe linee diverse e quindi decise di riorganizzarle e semplificarle. I Centris 610 e 650 vennero rimpiazzati sei mesi dopo dai Quadra 610 e 650, che erano contenuti nello stesso case ed erano dotati di una CPU più veloce. Il modello a 20 MHz venne portato a 25 MHz e il modello a 25 MHz venne innalzato a 33 MHz, il Centris 660AV venne rinominato Quadra 660AV e venne presentato senza modifiche di sorta rispetto al Centris.

  • Les Macintosh Centris sont une familles d'ordinateurs personnels Macintosh commercialisés par Apple entre 1991 et 1995. Lancés en 1991, les Macintosh Quadra étaient destinés à remplacer les Macintosh II dans le haut de la gamme Macintosh. Contrairement à ceux-ci, ils étaient dotés des nouveaux processeurs Motorola 68040 (d'où leur nom), plus puissants que les 68030. Ils utilisaient des boîtiers au format tour très évolutif (Quadra séries 700, 800 et 900). En 1992 de nouveaux modèles, les Quadra de la série 600, plus abordables et dans un boîtier compact (format « pizza ») apparurent. L'année suivante Apple lança des machines de milieu de gamme pour remplacer les vieillissants Macintosh II, qui démocratisèrent le 68040 : les Macintosh Centris (Centris car elles formaient le centre de la gamme). Seuls trois modèles de Macintosh Centris sortirent, Apple ayant décidé de fusionner les deux gammes Centris et Quadra en octobre 1993. Les trois Centris (610, 650, 660AV) furent alors renommés respectivement en Quadra 610, 650 et 660AV. Le dernier Quadra de haut de gamme fut le Quadra 840AV, qui fut lancé en juillet 1993. Deux modèles de moyenne et d'entrée de gamme furent encore lancés (les Quadra 605 et 630) avant que la gamme soit progressivement remplacée par les Power Macintosh. (fr)

Apple released three computers bearing the Centris name: the Centris 610 (replacing the Macintosh IIsi) and Centris 650 (replacing the Macintosh IIci in form and the Quadra 700 in function), both of which were introduced in March 1993, and the Centris 660AV which followed in July. Apple also considered the Macintosh IIvx to be part of the Centris line. The IIvx was released in October of the previous year but, according to Apple, their lawyers were unable to complete the trademark check on the "Centris" name in time for the IIvx's release. The retirement of the Centris name was announced in September 1993, with the 610, 650 and 660AV all being rebranded the following month as Macintosh Quadra machines as part of Apple's effort to reposition their product families to correlate with customer markets instead of price ranges and features. The IIvx was also discontinued in favor of the newly announced Quadra 605. (en)
