Congrats. Which 500mhz did you get? The one with 64mb or 128mb of onboard memory? I hope the latter because you need as much memory as you can get(640mb max).

OH I don't know how scarce they are over there but £135 does seem pretty high. That's basically low-end G5 Powermacs over here in the US.

128mb i think, it has a total of 128mb but he didn't tell me if it is all onboard

£135 may seem high but it will come with a warranty and i have dealt with the guy before so i am happy to pay more, and the parents are more happy

Good buy! The 500MHz seems to have the best longevity of all the ibook G3's. The 700MHz+ had logic board issues in some.
