Hey there everybody. I just recently picked up an old Beige G3 300mzh / 8gig HD / 312 RAM. Funny, my employer was going to chunk it, so I rescued it.

From what I can tell, everything works OK. I'm interested in hearing suggestions on good, value-conscious upgrades to help boost this old box. I'm not looking to make this a specimen to be admired, just one that has good, speedy performance for home-based stuff and some graphics work (Illustrator, Pshop, etc).

Thanks,

Jon

Hey Jon -

Check out the Feb 2004 issue of MacAddict. They had a whole section in there on how to upgrade your mac, and mentioned the old beige ones specifically. The article seemed pretty thorough, too.
