    so, since I bought an old mac mini real cheap I was surprised how peppy it was. So I looked around ebay for an IMAC from that era, I found 17 inch with a damaged screen, I won the bid for 33bucks. now the problem. I cant seem to find a replacement screen. Do you guys know a good source for screens? and no, I dont plan on paying over 50 bucks for a screen,so it dont have to be new.

    eBay really. Look for a unit with a dead logic board as they usually go cheap. In the meantime, stick on an external display and place it in front of the iMac. I agree, they are great little machines. My 88 yr old father still uses one.
