I have a blue G3 that a friend gave me about nine years ago, still in the original box. He explained that his sister was given the computer but after plugging it in and turning it on one single time she had 0 interest in it (I live in the deep south...). So, not knowing what I had, I pulled it out of the ORIGINAL BOX and styrofoam cushions and put it on a shelf in a closed in cupbard (HUUUGE mistake). About a year ago it dawned on me the potential value of this thing and now I am diving in to find out what it is worth as individual parts or as a whole, but I am so enamored with it myself that I may just put it on a shelf in my studio with a spotlight on it, along with other things I love, sitting in spotlights. I have done some research but have found (not surprisingly) that this is an exceedingly rare object and I have been unable to get any bearing on its true worth. So, I have two starting questions that will inform others I have: 1. Is there a record within the OS that proves how many times it has been started up (I started it up twice since it was given to me so as I understand its history, only 3 times)? 2. Is it worth more in unused parts or as a whole, being completely unused? Thank you in advance!!! I am brand new to this forum and only joined on account of this majestic relic I am so privileged to own.
