I have an iMac 333MHz G3 with a 20GB HD. It is an awesome awesome machine, and I upgraded it to 288 MB of RAM. What else?

I have a PowerBook G3 250MHz with 64MB of RAM, and a 5GB hard drive.

Hey so what about all the stuff for the iMac?

Is that the powerbook with ram trouble?

Yea, the PowerBook has one bad RAM chip.

The iMac is a 333MHz G3 with an upgraded 20GB hardrive, and 288MB of RAM. It is the Blueberry model, or it may be bondi blue. I can't tell the difference. It has the original mouse, keyboard, and power adapter.

It is also pre loaded with X, and runs aweseome!

The only Bondi Blue iMac ever made was the 233MHz version. I have that one.

The blueberry version was included in the 333MHz series.

The difference is that the bondi blue has some green in it, and the blueberry, well, is blue.

The best of luck on the trade, guys!

Thank you soo much, you don't know how much this is helping me! I am working super hard for the money! Thanks again! Where you interested in my 512k? I never got a email response from you.

I sent the email! Oh well...

I am not very interested in the 512k. I have enough computers in my collection already :D

Anyways, the price is 200 dollars, but I need to figure out shipping.

GREAT NEWS!

I just sold my PowerMac 9500 for $200!!!!! So this means I have the money! So he is sending the money out today and it will take 3 days to get into my my friends PayPal account, then another 3 to get the cash to me, after then I will send off to you the full $200 plus shipping, my zip is 93612. Thanks and btw did you ever find out how much RAM is working instead, and does it come with a floppy? I know about the iMac but would you sell for $$$? Thanks man a lot!

I really dont want this thing to be messed. I really appreciate you getting the money and all. But before we do the deal, I just want to tell you one last time about the machine.

PowerBook (something)
250MHz G3
5GB HD
64 MB of RAM
12.1 in screen, and stuff like that
Pretty sure it has a floppy and CD

About the working of the computer. I am about 80 percent sure it is the RAM that is screwing with the machine. So, when you send me the money, and I send you the computer, I want to make a fair trade.

I will give 14 days on this computer. If you can't get it to work, just send it back to me, and I will send you your money back. I just don't want to rip anyone off, cause that is screwed up.

B.T.W- I didn't understand that last thing you said about the iMac. Can you re-phrase that?

Hey its cool its nice to know there is good people like you out there! I plan on right after buying getting a 128Mb chip ram so I can have for X, thanks for the whole 2 week thing. Just woundering if you would sell your iMac for cash and how much.

Btw real quick, is this what it looks like?

I just woundering so I know what to look for to expand it when I get it.

Thats the one!

Alright, this is the deal with the imacs. We have 3 imacs. 2 are the bondi-blue 233MHz with 96 or 160MB of RAM and 6GB HardDrives.

I have one 333MHz with a 6GB Hardrive, 288MB of RAM, original mouse and keyboard, and it is working great. I love these machines. The 333MHz runs OS X most fluently (obviously). I would be asking about 400 for the 233 (each) and 500 for the 333MHz that is decked out with RAM.
I am not sure if we are going to sell these though.

Actually, you live quite close to me. I live in Palm Springs, CA. It is only about 5 hours from you, so maybe you could drive down and check it out? Its very easy to get here once you are on the I-10

Really sorry about this but I thought the Powerbook you had was a Wallstreet model, I need a Powerbook capible of OS X, thanks though. The iMacs are a little to steep for me I am looking for a good 333Mhz at or around $300 thanks anyway sorry about that!
