    i cant post in the market place so im hoping its okay to post here.
    im looking for either a good G3 iBook, a mac mini, eMac, or lower spec iMac G4.
    i have around $500 CA ($430 US) to spend, but i can go higher.
    if anyone has any thing in this range to sell, please post.

    wont 430 US Dollars with some extra cash get you a new mac mini? I'm sure you have a keyboard, mouse and monitor laying around somewhere.

    If I were you I'd wait 'til the intel Mac minis are out then I'd buy that.

    It would cost a bit more and you'll have to wait a couple months, but it'll be worth it.

    Nice, fast processor + no problems + up-to-date.

    :D

    There are a couple of people in this thread selling Mac minis at or below your specified price point...

    Well, just a personal opinion here, if you don't have a display, keyboard or mouse you might want to get an eMac or iMac G4. Otherwise, the Mac Mini would be my first choice. Don't go down to a G3 though when you can get a G4. :)
