The IIvx was aimed directly at the mid-range market. It introduced a new case design (the first case built with an internal CD-ROM in mind), and ran on a 32 Mhz 68030 processor with a 68882 FPU. However, the 16 Mhz bus made it roughly equivalent to a 25 Mhz IIci. The IIvx cost $2,950, and was later rereleased in the consumer market as the Performas 600 and 600CD.
