What to do with an old G3

    Hey everybody. I have an old iMac g3 that I bought mostly just for its looks, but also to use it as a small computer for web browsing and iTunes. I upgraded the ram to 280mb, and put panther on it.

    However, I haven't been using it much lately, and would like to put it to good use. Don't need a file server, as my laptop's hard drive has 100gb left, and don't want to gut it into a Macquarium.

    So, any suggestions? Its the grape 333mhz model. Thanks!

    Stick a big HD in it, and use it as an iTunes jukebox/music server?

    I'm not sure what your needs are but I took my 350 Mhz iMac upgraded the RAM to 1 GB and Hard Drive to a 80 GB 7200 rpm and OS to 10.2 Jaguar.

    It runs Microsoft office, internet, and youtube with no problems.
