Well I'm buggering off to uni but the family desperately needs a new computer. At the moment we have something like a 400mhz Celeron (i know!) 64MB SD-RAM and 15 gig hard drive. This speed demon is running... XP Professional! So it's obviously it is one hell of a sluggish computer. My sister wants a mini iPod but I told her there is no point whilst we have that. I was looking on eBay and came across a G3 600mhz iMac, 256MB RAM, 40GB hard drive in Graphite which is running Panther. She just needs to access the internet, chat to her friends on MSN messenger, use iTunes, word process, put digital photos on that kind of thing. Is it a goer even running Panther? What if I stick another 512MB of RAM in there? After being a PC user for many years I have no way of telling what's a fast Mac CPU and what isn't. Thanks for any help.
