    You are missing/leaving out a vital part of information... let's see if you figure out which it is :)

    I will come into ownership of three today, PM me or reply below if you are interested in one and I would be happy to sell one for a low cost plus actual shipping. All have the original Apple keyboard and mouse.

    I think the colour is still more important :)

    Your location is important. Here in Florida, my local craigslist pretty much always has iMac G3s going for $20 or so. I actually picked up a free 600MHz Graphite model a few years ago from some guy that didn't want it. Even other old iMacs are going cheap here; a year or so ago, I picked up a near-pristene iMac G4 for $20.

    From those desired specs it sounds like you are really looking for an iMac G4 or iMac G5. The G3 never came in a 1GHZ, the highest was 700MHZ unless I am mistaken. Also, the screens will all be 14" CRT as they were built into the design, again, unless I am mistaken.

    I believe you're thinking of the eMac, with those specs.

    Good call, that would work too but it is still a G4. Methinks the OP needs a G4 or G5 machine.

    OP - what do you need this for? You said a project but did not elaborate.
