    Bronze Keyboard...

    ...think its a Lombard. Sweet though. Lusted after those when they came out, still had a Blackbird (Powerbook 520c), couldn't justify plopping down 2500 for one.

    I guess. I got a pair of iMac G3s I can't even give away. I am still trying to sell the PM G4 DAs, but even at $40 on CL no one wants them. They do however want to sell their 1st gen MacBooks for $500. It's laughable. All the posers are trying to sell their old incompatible stuff to buy new MBAs and MBPs for ML. That lame cult of Mac crap pisses me off.

    Yeah nowadays the imac g3s are quite the tough sell
    but keep in mind its all about the presentation I was able to sell a g3 tower for $50 within 5 hours at a yard sale all because I had a sign made of all the specs listed in bold letters and the price right in front of it. And I had it plugged into my wi-fi and all hooked up at a desk for people to try out and make sure it works. People are more likely to buy somthing if they can play with it for a little bit.
    The sign read
    98"Apple Power Mac
    350mhz PowerPC G3 processor
    512mb RAM
    Ati Rage 128 Pro graphics Card
    Duel 10gb 5400rpm Hard Drives
    32x CD-Rom Burner Drive
    Zip 100 drive
    Includes 17" Apple Studio Display Pro
    Monitor And Apple Keyboard and mouse
    Running OS X Panther with bonus gimp software
    All for the low low price of only $50

    We were once a quite group people who praised the great Rainbowed One but as our great god perished in battle against the Pocket Tempest. The Pocket Tempest rose as the new God and thus new breed of Mac users appeared. These new ones no longer respected the great machines they used, they treat them as if they no longer have souls.

    Dark times are on the horizon for those of us that remember the old days.

    While I doubt that, unless he's zen.state or another very knowledgeable person on MacRumors that frequents the PowerPC section.
