    Found it on Craigslist. The guy said he couldn't get it to work and posted a photo of the "?" file folder that shows when no OS/Disk is found. Bought it from him and upon getting home, I found a Snow Leopard disk in the drive (I laughed a little). All I've had to do was install Leopard and it's running like a champ. The LCD needs to be replaced (has some marks on it), but that's only cost me another $30 (via PowerBook Medic). $60US seems like a pretty sweet deal for a 20" iMac G5. On a side note, it's hard to believe it's been 2 years since I've been a regular on here...it's good to be back.

    HEY!

    We were all wondering about you! :)

    Yeah, that is a pretty good deal once you fix her up.
