    I just bought a G3 Wallstreet off eBay. I payed $53 including shipping.

    Here is the link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...WN:IT&viewitem=&item=120113130068&rd=1&rd=1"]

    I am not exactly sure about the specs.

    It lists it as a 250MHz processor in one place, and 300 in another. Also, 12 in one, 14.1 in another.

    So, the specs are:
    250/300MHz processor
    128MB ram
    OS 9 (I plan to upgrade the ram and install 10.2)
    Working battery

    Comes with G4 restore CD, AC Adapter, and battery.

    So, did a get a good deal?

    Yes you did, assuming it is what the auction says it is (I don't see a reason to think the actual product would be different).

    It would be a fun toy to play around with, but as far as everyday use, you may find it a bit slow :)

    I'm only really here at night.
    huuummmm.........did you happen to notice that in the "item specifics" it says the lappy is "new sealed in box"............but the listing says otherwise

    if it is NOT NIB, then I would be very upset!!!!

    I avoid those "iSoldit" clowns like the plague, since you can never get in touch the actual sellers, and they DISCLAIM any & all responsibility for the item, it's condition and all the other legal crap.......

    I don't know. If the hard drive is missing, the caddy probably is too. That would suck. It is the 14". It comes with a PowerMac install disk which won't work with that machine. You have to have your own software. I would say it is not so good of a deal. I think I will see you soon in the Marketplace WTB: wallstreet parts.
