Total $504.00
Asking $550.00 or best offer.

This is a one of a kind PowerMac G3 All In One. Itís a great Mac for the fanatic or for a first time user such as a student in Middle or High School. The paint job on this Mac is very nice!! Professionally painted with an airbrush! One of a kind you will never see a Mac like this again. Iíve been working on this Mac as a school project. I have been working on this machine for about 6 months. I have had no problems with it. I have it running almost at its optimal prime. If you would like to take it further you could increase the HDD capacity, the amount of RAM, and put a super drive in it. It has never been in a smokerís house, and has been treated with the best of care. This computer gets cleaned once a week! This computer came from a school it was the best one they had. Now Iíve made it the best one on the planet! Now that I am finished with it I am ready to sell it and buy another used computer and create another monster from a PowerMac G4 tower! There is no zip drive and I have not tested the floppy drive because I do not use floppy disks. It has a built in Ethernet card for high speed web browsing and networking, all other ports work and it is OSX compatible. Keyboard mouse and all other cables included. Thank you for your time!!!!

Sincerely,

Dave S.

on the right side it says FBI on the left side it says Digital Mafia. you can obviously guess what the FBI stands for and digital mafia is just a cool name that i came up with.

Considering all the internal upgrades, I thought it was a pretty nice job. If you can, you might want to offer to paint over the words and pictures on the sides.

How did you add the USB 2 ports?

(I don't actually need the computer, just wondering... ;) )

Those All-in-ones have PCI Slots in 'em.

From the first pic, the top looks translucent, like a blueberry iMac...

I think so. There are rules against thread-crapping here right?


For the potential buyer/trader:

3. If you have no need for the items or don't like the price, items, payment method, or other terms, ignore the thread. Do not post negative remarks about the sale or seller based on their offer, or suggest to others that they buy other products or buy/trade at other sites. Do not try to derail somebody else's sale by posting in the thread. Let shoppers make their own decisions.

The top and rear of AIO machines are translucent, though, normally it's sort of a pinkish-grey plastic.

what the PowerMac looked like was a really ugly beige for the most part. and a ok looking translucent silver for the top and back.

It's 16 bit (http://apple-history.com/frames/g3aio.html). It can output millions of colors, but the built-in 15" display can only display thousands of colors.

Willing to part it out? To be quite honest, I dont think you'll be able to get the price you want. Espically with the paint job. :(

I'm interested in the HD and the G4 chip.

I'm not interested in buying this, as I have my own G3 AIO with spliced video to accomodate standard PCI video cards on the internal monitor, but I just wanted to say that I like the paintjob. I love these machines and they are remarkably upgradable, although they are starting to show their age now and no longer accept new upgrades. You may want to consider lowering you price on this a bit or selling it on ebay.

Hehe, I think he was just asking why you painted the Mac. I think it's pretty cool although I would never have a use for such an old system.
