I've been lurking around here for a while really enjoying the site and all the threads - advice on what to buy, etc. I wish I had found this site before I entered the Mac universe, but I couldn't be happier to be a Mac user now. On my birthday, at the end of January, I finally had enough of my aging Compaq Armada laptop and left the house in frustration thinking I would go buy a new PC laptop to replace it. Off to CompUSA and I noticed the corner where the 'Apple Store' is. That sure is nifty stuff. About an hour later, I left with my new 12" iBook!!! All I can say is...WOW! Glad to be here! OK, now with the question. I have a just-turned 4yr old boy who really likes to play games on the computer. I can't believe how good he is with the trackpad, regular mouse, etc. Anywho, I don't like goldfish dust and cheese stick slime on my pretty new iBook, so I was thinking about getting him a machine. What are thoughts on looking for an older G3 iMac in the 400MHz + range? Would those run Panther? I have no experience with earlier versions of the OS, so I would like to have 10.3+ installed on it. Funds are limited, or I would be all over the Mini for him. Thoughts? Recommedations? Anyone running Panther on a 400MHz or so G3 iMac? Thanks for any advice you guys/gals can offer.
