    haha define worth. If you are getting it for the haha factor or to somehow mod it into something great then sure.

    For actually doing any computing, well.... NO. I suppose if it is for a child to use the internet on or something, but even then...

    For $30 tho, can't hurt.

    I think I would pay $25 for it so I could gut it of electronics and turn it into a really geeky fish bowl. I've wanted to find one of those cheap enough to do that with since I got the idea from userfriendly.org years ago.

    btw winghut8, doesn't the rule for making a signature on this site specifically say NOT to do what you did, i.e. having 6 lines or so, one for each item you have? :rolleyes:

    Lol had to say something about that... No offense or anything.

    It would just be a 30 pound paper weight for me, unless you plan to use it, don't bother.

    These can still be used, but, you have better computers. Unless you want a low-load webserver or something it's probably surplus to requirements.

    I'm going to echo all the others, it's not worth $30 unless you plan on using it. If it was cheaper (ahem: free) I would probably consider one as a jukebox.

    What do you plan to do with the machine?

    Why not? $30 for a working imac? Sounds like you could do *something* with it.

    Save your money. I have a maxed out G3 iMac. It's completely worthless

    why bother? a mini would suite you better. or a refurb. you didnt state your needs but i wouldnt buy anything today that is NOT intel. the future is intel. rumor has it the next os x release snow leopard wont run on a G5, or G4. Leopard now won't even run on the G3.
