Identity Crisis

What Macboy Fan said ... 
The Power Mac 4400 (aka Performa 4400 and Power Mac 7220 in some international markets) was one of Apple's attempts at creating a cheaper computer to attact the price focused customer.  
Although they had all the usual ports and connections, you couldn't help but notice that something was different about this computer.  The floppy disk drive was on the left hand side (the only time this has ever been done), and it had a very basic metal enclosure.  
If you hadn't seen the Apple logo on the front you could almost be forgiven for thinking you were looking at a wintel box.  Well you would have been close, they were all built for Apple by Acer Computer in Tawian.  The internal and external design was very close to an Acer's desktop at that time.    
The front bezel was the only thing that looked designed in Cupertino. 
No wonder this poor Mac is confused!
