    So i got this iMac off eBay for just £2.15! It's a tangerine model with a 10 gig HD and 160 mb RAM, running 10.3.9. Actually came with Word for mac installed. Gonna get a usb dongle to get it on the web. My only complaint is that I can't sync my iPhone.

    Thanks. Probabbly gonna upgrade the RAM at some point. It's not bad for the apps installed but I would imagine it's quite slow on the web.

    Yep that is a shade of orange. I forgot to say that it has a 333MHz processor.

    Awesome! I've never really seen any orange ones before; usually blue was the most common I thought.

    I'd change the hard drive out too. I've bought six G3 iMacs in the last few years and the hard drive of every one has died after a few months of proper use if it wasn't dead already.

    Give it a speedy 80-120gb drive and 512mb of RAM and it'll speed up to no end. They're still very usable computers!

    wow a original :)and for a absolute bargain price :eek:so i guess you got enough left over for getting a bit more ram , as there is nothing these little buggers like more then getting ram :D

    they like to take two 144-pin PC66 SO-DIMM 256mb and a great opportunity to clean it inside as the original iMac have a little fan inside
    here a how too
