    On Sunday I picked up an iMac G4 700mhz locally from eBay that was going for £35. The clincher was it had an airport card in it. When I got there though, the guy fired it up and there was a weird pattern top left in the menu bar, and he said it has been in his garage for ages, so he knocked me another £10 off it, so I got a bargain really, as the airport cards are worth that alone.

    It only had a 20gb hard drive in it and no optical drive, which I knew about, but it didn't even have the bracket they sit in, so the HD was just flopping about in there, on top of the cable which I presume was reasting on the logic board - not good, right??

    It is pretty scratched up on the outside, and dirty, but it has character. I kind of expected a hologram of Princess Leia to pop out while I was rummaging through its innards .... there was even a spider in there!! (iWeb??)

    This should be in the PPC forum. (EDIT: I see you posted over there too)

    Not a bad deal if you can get it running cheaply enough.
