The Performa Line

In September 1992, Apple launched its Performa line. Essentially repackaging other models, and bundling them with monitors, modems, and software, Apple sold the Performa line retail stores, such as Sears, at reduced prices. The Performa line was part of Apple's strategy to get back into the home market, which was becoming increasingly dominated by inexpensive IBM-clones.
