A multimedia game machine from Apple that used the PowerPC architecture and a limited version of the Mac OS. The Pippin was introduced in 1995 and discontinued two years later due to very poor worldwide sales. It included a CD-ROM drive, analog modem for Internet access and handheld game controller. Manufactured by Bandai in Japan and Katz Media Productions (KMP) in Europe, the machine was named after the colonial American Pippin apple.
