Hello all, First post in the PowerPC forum, really at all, but I have been enjoying your PPC forum here for about a year now. You guys remind me of why I loved Macs when I first got into computers. You guys are like the cool video gurus in the 80s-90s on Quantel Paintboxes, Amigas, and SGI machines (and classic Macs as well). You know your hardware and use what you like, machines that excite you, rather than go out and buy the newest thing held up at a WWDC. Rant aside, I was gifted a Beige G3 Minitower from an engineer here at work and I was so excited to see a bit of purple in there when I opened it up. It turns out it's got the Sonnet Encore 1Ghz chip, which I guess is actually a G4? I don't have a DB15 adapter here so I can't see the machine specs until I get home. I will post pics as well! It powers on and chimes, I hear the HD spin up. All seems well. He even gave me a (I am the only one who thinks this in the world) NICE Beige 21" Trinitron with VGA/SDI. Is there anything I should be leery of? This is the first time I have used a G3 since before the DA G4's came out. Regardless of what most people think, I LOVE the way these things look and I would like to hold onto it for a very long time. Any cap/battery issues? How are the power supplies? Excited to show you some pictures. It will be joining a collection of 5 G4 Towers, a B&W G3, iMac G4, iBook G3 Clam, 4 PowerBook G4 12"ers, a PowerBook 17", G4 Cube, a G5 Quad, DP G5 2.0, DC G5 2.0, 2ci, 2e, 2gs. Of course, I won't mention any Intel Macs. Jess PS, is there ANY hope of finding an AIO G3 to compliment it? They were the first Mac I ever used, the single computer that got me into computers. Or are those things just so rare to find without insane shipping costs? Thanks!
