Hey everybody. I have an old iMac g3 that I bought mostly just for its looks, but also to use it as a small computer for web browsing and iTunes. I upgraded the ram to 280mb, and put panther on it.

However, I haven't been using it much lately, and would like to put it to good use. Don't need a file server, as my laptop's hard drive has 100gb left, and don't want to gut it into a Macquarium.

So, any suggestions? Its the grape 333mhz model. Thanks!

Stick a big HD in it, and use it as an iTunes jukebox/music server?

I'm not sure what your needs are but I took my 350 Mhz iMac upgraded the RAM to 1 GB and Hard Drive to a 80 GB 7200 rpm and OS to 10.2 Jaguar.

It runs Microsoft office, internet, and youtube with no problems.

BTW the max hard drive you can install is 120 GB and the max RAM that you can install is 512 mb.
