    Last night I picked up a new member of the family! Only 30 bucks. I think it was well worth it. Now I just need a Sage iMac.

    We might have been able to guess from the picture if there had been a picture.

    Enjoy the new Mac!

    Runs great after disabling spotlight and dashboard. It only has 256mb of ram, I am going to bump that up then it will run even better.

    Congrats on the great find. I've got my 600MHz Graphite (1GB RAM, 60GB SSD, 10.4) in my living room and it runs great as a light web-browsing computer. iMac G3's are tanks.

    Here you go. If anyone else would like to see anything more specific or see a walkthrough of any of my other Macs, let me know and I'll be glad to make a video.

    FYI: Besides the posted Macs below I also have a PowerBook G4 17" 1.67GHz and in a couple days I'll have my hands on a 400MHz Pismo PowerBook G3. Also, my PowerMac G4 MDD has an SSD in it.

    NICE! The tangerine is my absolute favorite of all the iMac G3-colors. I got a Snow for free so I kind of had to go with that - but I still wish it was the tangerine model... :)

    Yes I think the tangerine is my favorite too. Now I really want a sage but so far no luck. Its pretty hard to find them.

    It's no problem. Let me know if you have any other questions about the iMac or any of my other Macs and I'll make a new video.
