couldn't resist buying her at the carboot today.

it's green 400mhz model with 192mb ram and a 10gb hard drive as fair as i can work out.

did a bit of research, and you can upgrade these to a 120gb hard drive and 512mb of ram, and put on osx 10.3.9

was just looking for a bit of help off the back boys here, as im a windows boy for now, and if anyones selling any cheap components.

was intending to use it for older music apps or something.

What a beauty of a machine! How much you pay for her? I have an 80gb hard drive out of my old iMac, not sure if it would fit?
errm she wanted 20 quid, but i haggled to 15 it even has 'photoshop 4.0' the keyboard and the original hockey mouse :P i think i'm gonna look for a full 120gb, not that i'll ever use it. i might have an 80 somewhere myself :\ gonna max it out.

found out it can take up to 1gb, so i'm gonna look for that now 2 512 sticks maybe a superdrive aswell :L

nice little project i got here i realised :) although i watched a few vids, and it looks a pain in the ****.

so much for saving my money :\

My sisters G3 iMac died a few months ago, so I took the hard disk out and trashed the rest (we bought her a new Macbook as a replacement and she's loving it :-D)

I followed this guide here to remove the HD - while it's more effort than changing the HD on newer Macs, it really wasn't that difficult.

The HD was a Maxtor 10Gb IDE drive (model 91020U3), so make sure the larger HD you get isn't SATA. :thumbsup:
haha thanks for the link :) hard drive is same as mine i think. macbook :( i'm jealous, should be saving to replace my windows system i built in replacement to an imac which is 10 years more upto date.
