    Damn, that's pretty steep for a G3 but it's new and in box but still... I thought ya found it for free or for a cheap price and I was like "Daaamn! Ya sure got lucky". Trusting a $900 item in the hands of shipping companies is quite a bad idea tho..

    Yeah fedex was quite rough on my grape imac g3 I ordered not too long ago. I got it fixed back though. Upgraded it to 1gb ram, a new clock battery, soon to get a new hard drive and reinstall os9. I love that thing

    OMG. I can't believe someone got $1000 for a old brand new $30 computer.

    Yeah, this may be the first case where someone paid $999 for a computer, let it sit in a box for 16 years, and then sold it for what they paid....

    Macs sure do hold value, hehe...
