    Looking to get away as cheap as possible and get a Power Mac G4 or B&W G3. Specs aren't important, as long as it works. :)

    Can be missing minor components...like a HD or optical drive...that's not a problem!

    Can pay via PayPal eCheck.

    Thanks,
    itasor

    I'd so be able to hook you up, but I only do MOs.

    I have lots of Blue G3s and a PCI G4, all varying specs.

    I'll do a Money Order for something from someone I've seen do deals/have done deals with before on here. If they're new though, I prefer PayPal, just for the little bit of security.

    ReanimationLP...PM me, I'll do a MO.

    I just thought that I would add that I'm not looking to spend more than $100 on anything. Keep in mind that I can go buy a B&W on eBay with 128MB RAM and a 10GB HD for a little less than $80 shipped. :eek: Let me know what you have!

    I know its your prerogative to buy anything you want, but i am curious as to why you want a G3 B&W or early G4, both of which use PCI graphics when for a little more money you can get a G4 with AGP graphics, which has a lot more upgrading options (more processor upgrade options, can hold more RAM, can hold multiple HDs without a HD controller upgrade)?
    Don't mean to pry, i am just curious :D

    Hmm...good question. I don't really want to do a ton of upgrades. A stock graphics card and stock processor with upgraded RAM will run Tiger fine for what I need this computer to do. If I was buying a G4, I would definitely want the AGP model, if I wanted to spend the money, but in all seriousness, I'll looking to pick something up for a good deal here, considering these things are selling for so cheap now a days. :)

    I have been looking for a good deal on a powermac G4 as an upgrade project recently, but i have thought it over, and it would be a waste of money. I am now looking into a cheap mac laptop. Good luck with your search :D

    BTW, there was a guy in DC selling some Powermac G4 Dual 500s for $50 last week, maybe if you found someone who bought one and offered them a little more than they payed, you could get an awesome computer for around the price you are looking at.

    I live in NY, so nope, and I doubt he'll ship one.

    No one has a B&W they want to sell me? Just PM or IM me what you want for it....it won't hurt. :p Also, a 350mhz G4 would be great too!
