iMac G4 Buying Tips

I have been wanting to get into buying retro computers and retro macs and I wanted to start out with the iMac G4. Just wondering where the best places are to look for one of these and where you can get one in the sub-$200 range. Thanks!

Post your question in the PowerPC part of the forum you'll get a lot of responses and those guys are very knowledgable.

If you want to save on shipping you can first try Craigslist or Ebay and filter down to your area. Or if you want it shipped and don't mind the cost you can go Ebay and still get an older one for as low as $100 shipped. Ebay has 44 G4 iMacs listed right now.

Try MegaMacs.com, they have a G4 and other iMacs going back to G3.
