The Power Macintosh 5400 ran a PowerPC 603e processor at between 120-200Mhz.  It had a hard drive of either 1.2 or 1.6Gb, a 4x or 8x CD-ROM and 1.4Mb floppy drive.  There was 8 or 16Mb of logicboard RAM and the RAM could be expanded to 136Mb via two DIMM RAM slots.  A 15-inch multiscan monitor was built-in and it had built-in microphone and speakers.
