The Motorola 68000 was the first Apple Macintosh processor. Although it had some 32-bit characteristics, such as its 32-bit CPU registers, it is considered a 16-bit processor because of its 16-bit data path.

The Motorola 68020 was the first 32-bit Mac processor. However, the Macintosh LC ran on a 16-bit system bus with ASICs that artificially limited RAM to 10 MB (as opposed to the 32-bit limit of 4 GB).

It was also the first Mac processor to support memory management units.
