I grew up in the warm glow of CRTs. Mac Plus, IIe, Classic II, Macintosh TV, Centris 650, etc. I didn't have an LCD until well into the 2000s.Hm. I much prefer the iMac G4's design actually. I think it looks so cute and elegant and inviting. I have both a G3 and a G4. I like the G3, don't get me wrong, but CRTs isn't really me to be honest.
Didn't get my first flat LCD for myself until 2010 or so. Trying to get dual CRTs in a small space was always fun.
If you stick with software that is either period or universal (meaning it can run on both PowerPC and Intel) then things should stay fairly smooth.I’m a new found apple fanboy. So, older apple stuff is just so unfamiliar to me. What made me appreciate apple the most is the smooth OS experience that can stay running smooth even on a very low end system. So I can definitely see how your still using something even though it is so dated, the apple operating system does very well with aging hardware it seems. It usually stays pretty smooth throughout the systems life.
Unlike windows, I’m pretty OCD about optimal performance, so I’m reformatting my PC, if a fly farts on my keyboard the wrong way lol.
