Most popular G3 iMac color?

    I'd like to buy a used G3 iMac for a toddler. Specifically, I'd like to get a strawberry G3 iMac with a slot-loading DVD drive. Every time I look on eBay, though, I don't see very many strawberry iMacs of any kind, which made me wonder which color was the least popular. Seems to be a 3-way tie between orange, lime, and strawberry. I see a lot of grape and blueberry, though. I'm thinking of the 5 "flavored" iMacs, not graphite, snow, indigo, bondi, flower power, or blue dalmation.

    Also, if anyone has any suggestions about where to go to get one of these other than eBay, I'd like to hear it. I can't find them anywhere online or at authorized resellers. Small Dog is currently out of stock, too. I'm a little nervous about getting a Mac that old, but I'm willing to take my chances.

    Thanks!

    Mac Of All Trades has iMacs listed under "Older Macs" - the stock changes sometimes daily.

    Right now (Fri) they have Lime and Grape, but who knows what they'll have Monday?

    Orange is definitely the least popular, I think any form of blue is the most

    you know they actually (at least in OZ) had standard discounting on the tangerine iMacs. This would explain why alot of schools that have (or had :() macs had a fair few more of this type than any other.

    They never made a strawberry slot loading iMac.

    Sure they did. http://www.apple-history.com/frames/body.php?page=gallery&model=imacdv

    The new set of colors (sage, indigo, snow, ruby) came later. But there definitely was a set of slot-loading iMacs that came in the original 5 colors.

    all the colors were really cool, the wife has a blue 500 so iam biased, but i was thinking orange when the originals came out but ended up with bondi blue( almost green bluue)333. that was my first imac and think apple should bring back some limited run color emacs- say red,white and blue. dont force qty on retailers apple just sell the colors ordered hello.
