Apple Macintosh Performa 600 in Blank Check (1994)

Preston's Dad brings home the Performa from work, to help his sons set up their new business.

Importance: ****
Preston uses the Performa to print the cheque and names his imaginary employer "Mr Macintosh" after it, using voice synthesis on the machine to have phone conversations in his name.

Realism: ****
Mostly fine, but the computer calculates it would take 342,506 years for Preston's $11 to accumulate to $1000,000 at 3.45% interest when it would actually only take 337 years.

Visibility: *****

Hay people... It wasn't Performa 600, but Mac IIvi... Look at wikipedia on Macintosh IIvi :).

Correction to MJG's comment: At around that time, Apple tended to use the same cases for more than one Mac model per case, to the point where their 90s lineup was rather complicated, at least from what I saw on another website.
