By me Clif notes, because I hate wasting the time of others. -Perusing craigslist, I see an ad for a FREE iMac - Calling seller reveals that he was going to toss it out, but didn't want to illegally dispose of it. - Supposedly screen doesn't come on; no video. -Has an upgraded 80GB HDD, no OS on it. - I take iMac home, connecting it to my external monitor. To my surprise, iMac monitor fires up. Functions 100%? - I frantically scour the area for OSX disc, and eventually find Jaguar. -Hours later, here I am. First of all, I'm amused by how useable the computer is with a paltry 256mb of RAM. iTunes, Safari seem to function fine with just this amount. I'm going to head over to the computer outlet store to buy 2 512 sticks and max this thing out. Sweet! I've been dying to get back into a mac, at all costs. I sold my 20" 2.4ghz iMac back in January to raise cash for my apartments security deposit and rent. I had a place to live, no mac Picked this up for free to just screw around with an do basic tasks (word processing, iTunes, internet) and I'm finding it's capable. I'm hoping it will tide me over until I've saved up for a new unibody macbook. BTW, it's a Summer 2001 Graphite I'm typing from. 600mhz G3, 256mb RAM. Ohhhhh yeah. This thing seems to be a trooper. The fact that it is remotely useable after 8 years of use astounds and delights me to no end. Gotta love OSX and Apple hardware. Anyways, I wanted to let people know that I too may be turning into one of those Low-End-Mac wackos!
