    Hello All-

    I have an promotional mousepad from when (I think) apple was making their G3 macs. It is plain gray with Apple® written on it in black font that is the same font as the G3 iMac. I was wondering if it is rare, or there were many of them made, ect.
    I don't have my iPhone right now so i can't take a picture...

    I'm just curious is all.
    Thank you for your time

    I know this is terrible research, but a quick Google search didn't bring up much...

    Those are actually much, much older than the iMac G3. These are early '90s-era. I remember we had a bunch of them with the Mac LC models (original, II, and III) when I was in school. Most of the school ones were worn out or torn up, but I don't think they're that rare (yet? anyone want to clarify?)

    Growing up my father had a Macintosh IIcx and we later had a Macintosh 7500. I believe we had the mousepad as long ago as the IIcx. I always thought it came with the PowerMac but I guess this makes more sense. :)

    I have about a dozen of those, and the local computer recycling shop always has a bunch in their "$1 mouse pads" bin. I don't imagine they're very rare or valuable.
