Released in June 1993, the LC 520 was Apple's attempt to create a viable all-in-one computer for the 90s. It came in an attractive new one-piece case, sold for $2,000 and proved to be a popular home model. Many 520-style Macs have been produced since. The LC 520 was also released as the Performa 520.
