    ibook from ebay
    hi

    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.

    regards :doctor:

    iPhone6

    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!

    On that note is there anyway to tell if you are buying a hot Mac as seen a few I am interested in but not 100% if it is hot or not.

    Does macs not have serial numbers or the like that dodgy ones can be traced?

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