Originally back in the 80's the Macintosh used a Motorola 68000 chip. They chugged happily along on these until 1994 when Apple wanted to make the jump to the IBM PowerPC chip. This chip was interesting because it was the first mainstream RISC based CPU. It was also during this timeframe that the large
