    Upgrading a G3 b/w
    Firstly, please note my Mac G3 specs. It is a good, sturdy machine that ploughs steadily through almost everything I require of it, but it is slow by today's standards, and falls short in the area of video and some other performance standards. I cannot begin to afford a new computer, my eMac is likely to fail at some stage (the capacitor issue), so ... what about a processor upgrade?

    Better hope no one ever updated the firmware direct from Apple as they sent
    down code to unknowing owners that made some B&w G3's not upgrade. It was a nasty thing to do,but they needed to sale G4's.
