Hi. My parents had a 300MHz G3 PowerMac (beige) that died during a flood at their house. The computer is always on and the water fell through the ceiling and flooded a few inches on the floor. Both the computer and the monitor are dead (amongst other things) The insurance asked us to detail what was in the computer but also recommend and get a price for what would be "equivalent" today. I did just that but they don't like my suggestion because it's "too expensive". The problem I have is with the monitor. The old one was a 17" CRT from Apple. My way of thinking was that everything used to be Apple-branded and looked consistent, then the new PC should be Apple-branded and look consistent. Apple computers have always looked "good" and that is part of what you buy when you buy a Mac. So I suggested a 1.8 G5 with the 20" Cinema Display because that is the smallest available (?) and is made to match the look and feel of the G5 box. They were quick to point out that there is a black 17" crt from mitsubishi available in the online store. What do I do, what should I give them as an argument or what should the appropriate "replacement" be? What about RAM? I think the G3 had 128MB (an used MacOS 9) would a G5 with 256MB on Mac OS X be sufficient for an "equivalent performance ratio"? I don't think they understand the difference in requirement from the new OS and I can't prove it because I've never used OS X. The computer is now mostly used for web-browsing and my niece plays her games on it but the G3 was originally bought for a graphic design purpose using Photoshop, Illustrator and QuarkXpress. Thanks.
