List of Macintosh models by case type #article - "This list of Macintosh models by case type contains all case designs used by Apple Inc. for its Macintosh computers. The list is sectioned by general case layout, but inside the sections the order is chronological. Models that used multiple names (like most Performas) are listed only once. Where available, the "form factor" from Apple's datasheets has been used to determine the case designation and the computers that used it. For all-in-one models and notebooks that have the same basic case design, but differ in size, just one type is listed. Also, some models that differ only slightly or internally are listed together, like the two iMac G3s and the Power Mac G4s."

It was originally packaged with Microsoft Plus! 95 and later included in Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows ME, and Windows XP. This version of Pinball, developed by David Plummer at Microsoft, was a port of the game using the original art and sound, developed in C for cross-platform support because Windows NT supported RISC processors and prior versions of the game contained x86 assembly language and 16-bit logic. The Windows 98 installation CD has instructions on installing Pinball 3D on this version of Windows which are partly wrong; Microsoft later issued an updated support article. Windows XP was the last client release of Windows to include this game."
