The Apple Pippin, marketed and stylized as PiPP!N, is a fifth-generation home video game console initially released by Bandai on March 28, 1996 in Japan, and later the same year in the United States, with an initial MSRP of $499.99 (2-box set) / $599.99 (3-box set).

The hardware was based on the Power Macintosh line, featuring a PowerPC 603 CPU clocked @ 66 MHz, expandable RAM up to 22 MB (Bandai models have 6 MB onboard, while the KMP 2000 has 8 MB), and a largely underpowered Taos 8/16-bit VGA GPU.
