Thanks

You'll be after one of the old styled iMacs. If you can push the pennies further then try for an eMac.

G3 is fine but if you can go for a G4 then do it.
I have an old G3 iBook 12" version. lovely little thing but doing actual work on it is a pain
#5
I have an old G3 that I haven;t used for a year or so. What sort of price are you looking at? Also what area are you in as shipping the thing could be an issue due to the weight
#6
I have been after one of these for a while as well.

From what i have found the iMac G3 SNOW version is one of the better speced ones and IMHO the best looking one in all white!

I have missed out on a couple of these on ebay around the £40 mark.

Spec was 500mhz processor 80gb HD and 768mb ram (not bad for 40 squids!)

well it's my girlfirend really, but either way we live in bristol and i suppose i could drive a fair distance. I believe the shipping is between £15 - £20 on ebay..

could you send a PM with the specs? of your computer?

Thanks

I have a Snow iMac, and will be looking to sell it in October when I am buying a new Mac Mini with Leopard.

It's 600Mhz and a 40GB Hard Drive and has been upgraded so has 1 Gig of Ram.

I would be looking for a fair bit more than £40 for it though (closer to £100) - I am in Trowbridge so only 30 minutes from Bristol, PM me if you want any more info.

Mine may be a bit of a low spec for your needs

I have a blue and white G3 with a 300mhz processor, 320mb of memory and a 6GB hdd with Mac OS X.

It is ideal to mess around with and get used to the Mac scene and can be upgraded.

That's a good point... how easy is it to upgrade one of these things? I am no computer whizz but can understand the principles of upgrading a PC tower ( due esp. to it being seperate from the screen whereas these are built in ?)

Parts are they readily avaliable as this could then be a fun little task, upgrading etc..

:thinking:
#12
with the age of these things it's hardly worth th upgrade as you'll not notice the difference running apps of today. push the pennies further and get the better spec now

oh and once you've got a mac, be prepared to want to keep buying new ones as they're addtivce little so and so's!!

:thinking:


You will be looking at the iMac G3 then that has the screen and computer put together. I have a G3 Powermac which is a tower configuration with a seperate monitor.

Thought I would let you know
