The Apple Bandai Pippin is a multimedia platform designed by Apple Inc. (then Apple Computer, Inc.) and produced by Bandai in the mid 1990s. It is based around a 66-MHz PowerPC 603 processor, a 14.4 kbit/s modem and runs a stripped version of the System 7.5.2 operating system. The goal was to create an inexpensive computer aimed mostly at playing CD-based multimedia titles, especially games, but also functioning as a network computer. It featured a 4× CD-ROM drive and a video output that could connect to a standard television monitor. The platform was named for the Newtown Pippin, an apple cultivar, related to the McIntosh apple (which is the origin of the name Macintosh).
