I recently found this single-owner, very well-kept Bondi beauty. It is pretty immaculate and sporting a hefty upgrade to 96 MB memory.
I’m looking forward to a few rounds of MDK and maybe Descent.

Nice. I had a the Bondi Rev B in late 98, it was awesome. It's the one machine I really regret getting rid of because I had the Voodoo Game Wizard upgrade for the mezzanine slot, it made Unreal play great. This one you found looks like it's in great condition. Maximum ram can seem random on these slot loaders, it took me a few tries to get the right sodimms for my Rev D so that it could do 512MB.

Nice Bondi. I have a bondi revB which my son bangs on but it is badly Yellowed & sunburnt on one side - unfortunately not at all a clean specimen. Works just fine though :apple:

Congrats - the machine looks beautiful. (And I wish, I could keep my desk that organized and tidy!)
I especially do like the Bondi-color of the first iMac too. A pity, Apple didn't continue to use it on any other later iMacG3 version ...

That’s amazing, I didn’t know you could put a voodoo in an iMac! I had a couple of those in my PC in the day.
I was a 3DFX fiend. I had the 1 and 2 for my Powermac G3 and G4, and then my brother had the bondi iMac and we got him one too. I worked in Mac retail as a teenager at the time so I was super familiar with disassembling those for RAM upgrades and whatnot. 3DFX extensions and OpenGL made the world go round. Even flashed a PC Voodoo3 in my G4. Those were the days.

I've owned three of them; one a Rev A which is long-gone. The one I have now, I paid $25 for it, and it's in beautiful condition. I've dropped about $200 into it for memory and a processor upgrade. Now if I could find that Voodoo2 card...

Beautiful. I used to own the same one, my first Mac. I was so in the Windows world at that time, but visited Apple's website every day. Reading it at work and at home. I was so curious about it, nothing we have seen before. I finally pulled the plug on a used one and that was it for me. I collected so many Mac's after that. I miss that time of Apple.

Enjoy your iMac and I'm happy for you finding a great model. I am still searching for one again. Maybe i'll luck out with the Graphite model they last made.
