The first official pronouncements on the price of PowerPC upgrades for Apple Computer Inc’s Macintoshes have come from Apple Canada. Purchasers of Quadra 610, 650 and 950 Macs can slap down the equivalent to an extra $112, in return for which they will be sent a PowerPC processor upgrade board once it is released. Apple says that outside of the special offer, the standard price for the boards will be around $560. Macintosh upgrades come in two versions – those for machines with Processor Direct Slots can take the cheaper processor boards. The Quadra 840AV, 660AV, Centris 660AV, and the Macintosh IIvx and IIvi need the more complex logic-board replacements, expected to cost between $1,125 and $2,175.
