09-06-2005, 02:33 PM #1ibook from ebay
just taken on board a G3 500mhz iBook
i got it from ebay and it really is a killer deal
£205 plus postage - wow am i lucky
hardly a mark on it!
the guy did not know much about computers his auction just said
very good condition- so i bit the ebay pill took a chance and have come up trumps.
just had to share that with you guys in case you appreciate it
i am so pleased with this purchase
now to get on the net with it, after upgrading it seemlessly to OSX
sorry just had to tell you all - i'm comin in my pants.

That's awesome-- it's great to hear someone "pulling out a plum" once in a while.
Keep us posted on what you're doing with it!

Tiger runs efficiently on a 500mhz G3? Perhaps I should look into one of those then, hehe.
