    So, I've always wanted to get one of those old and awesome Macs but I just never had the space or time...

    Now, just recently I found on a local ad site a few interesting products:

    -iMac G3 (Power PC 750, 512 MB RAM, HDD 20 GB) 20$
    -iMac G3 with no specifications apart from 64mb of RAM 40$
    -iBook G4 no specs 50$
    -Macintosh Plus with LOADS of games 125$

    I really can't decide which I should get... I like them all and if I could, I'd buy one of each.

    None will probably be much use for me apart from some old retro games.

    *EDIT* Forgot to mention, they're all in good, working condition.

    What do ?

    i am a collector myself and from those I would choose the classic... alternatively the imac g3 is not bad as well but the classic is the classic

    Hey ! Thanks for replying ! I was wrong.. It's not a Classic, it's a Macintosh Plus. Does that change anything ?

    I don't know...I find the 125$ a tad pricey though, considering I could get better hardware for less :\ I'm not really looking for the best though. Just something fun and still "usable"

    You can get the iBook g4 which is a million times faster than the plus but it might still find it difficult to play even the new flash games over the Internet... The plus gives you some retro chic, and that is reflected in the price.

    If the iBook works, you could turn around and sell it on ebay for a profit. Then buy more old Macs!
