The Power Macintosh 6100/66 DOS Compatible is a fascinating machine. For $2,199 in 1995 you got MS-DOS and Mac OS in one computer, thanks to an Intel 486 and a PowerPC 601 inside! Yeah, mid-90s Apple was rather amusing.

  • I wanted to play Janes Fleet Command on this but could not get the 3d to work right. I also wanted to get NASCAR. Maybe I was not realistic.

  • I remember this computer. My gifted teacher got this and was showing it off. Saw the future at least in the area of file compatibility which we all enjoy today. The cut and paste between the two is mighty useful.

  • Holy shit this was my first computer.. except instead of it coming with the DOS card.. it came with a TV card.. you would plug your cable right into it and watch TV on a program on the desktop.. so in 1995 I would sit on the computer browsing the web while watching my cable TV on a lil window.. it felt like the future!!

  • Wow, too bad I didn't know about this back in the day. I shared office space with a guy who was a printer. So he needed Aldus Pagemaker and some Mac desktop publishing tools. But he also had dos/win3.1 software. So it was a clunky switchbox, etc. This would have been perfect for him. (cut & paste and file sharing)

Watching this video and playing with Basilisk II should allow me to forget about this wonderful hybrid, my Macintosh Classic also helps. Great video!

  • Those memory prices remind me of the price of an 80MB HDD back in the early 1990's. I think one for the AST laptop I had was about $500 for an 80MB upgrade, from the 40MB that was installed. But for someone who maybe needed to have compatibility between both operating systems, this was probably cheaper than having two separate computers back in the day. Plus you can switch back and forth on the go and not tie up desk space. And even back then 72MB of RAM was quite plenty, considering I think Windows 95 ran on 8-16MB of RAM and Windows 3.1 ran on 4-8MB I believe. Heck some of the early Pentium computers only shipped with 16, 32 or 64MB of RAM, but they could usually go up to 128MB.

  • I bought this horrible computer. What a mistake tho it was a good idea!! It was my last Apple product until the 5s iPone. Mine was $3,000.00. The dos side was flawed and the Mac side was very under powered. My Mac Centris was a better computer. Jane”s Fleet Command would not work on the Dos side of mine among other issues.

  • I think I saw something like this in 8th grade. However, during 10th grade ('96-'97), the programming computer lab upgraded to something very similar for our Turbo Pascal class. Except to save money you could get a version that came with an optional upgrade for the PC side of things using Cyrix CPUs from what I recall. Instead the MacOS ran a program called SoftDOS or something like that. So basically it was ideal for Turbo Pascal programs and anything else without the Cyrix upgrade ran slow af. I remember trying out all sorts of stuff on these machines once I became lab assistant my senior year with all the master passwords. I definitely remember having to use a key for the right click though, I believe it was the same key.

  • I had one of these. I could play Doom! Had some issues because the Mac side would be doing stuff and it would affect the Windows side. If a screen saver went on on the Mac side it would freeze the Windows side, took me months to figure out the source of that. Doom ran just fine for me, not sure what problem you were having. I eventually upgraded to a Performa 6400, that was a good machine.

  • My Primary School had a bunch of these in their office and one in the year 6 class room and two in the library (the one in the classroom was the only one students could use). They had them for 4 years if I recall. I had no idea what they replaced them with because by then I had moved onto high school. I remember the one in the year 6 classroom had Myst installed on it (that one belonged to the teacher who was the school tech who looked after the server and computers). The guy in charge of looking after all their computers loved this machine in particular because with it they could talk to the older macs in the year 1 to 5 classrooms and talk to the PC in the principle's office and PCs which made up the library cataloguing server (which used DOS) making communication between the Macs and PCs in the school possible. I've been into computers from a young age so I was one of the only students who showed genuine interest in the computers at the school. But this was the 90s so the teacher who looked after the computers was still hesitant to let me near them.
