FS: PowerMac G3 all in one turned into G4 w/ a sweet paint job

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.

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... )

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

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

It's 16 bit. 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.
