    please dont buy a G3 iMac haha. Apple doesnt support G3 processors anymore with Leopard needing a G4 or better and Snow Leopard will be Intel only.

    the G3 is 2 back from the last Apple Power PC CPU, the G5, which a dual core Intel kills. so an Intel iMac will BURN that G3 iMac and they are still pretty cheap. get the first Intel iMac the 1.83 GHz Core Duo model which is around $500-$600 http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&...ult&cd=1&q=imac+17"+1.83+GHz+core+duo&spell=1

    unless you want the cool transparent plastic bubble look with a CRT.

    I just purchased one for 60 BUCKS!!! its shipping now.
    DVD
    40GB HDD
    512MB RAM
    400MHz Processor
    MAC OS X 10.4


    now obviously this isnt state of the art but i mean come on for sixty dollars i think this is a steal. and as much as i dont like the hockey puck mouse that comes with it i still made sure that the one i purchased came with it so i had everything original. i wanted the (snow) white one but the teal one i got had the best specs for the same price as all the other ones.
