Today a friend proposed to me to buy his old iMac G3 that it just sitting in his bedroom. I asked him for the specs so I could consult the forums.


Here is what he gave me:

OS: 8.1 is all he told me, but he said it wasn't OSX?

RAM: 60 MB

Hard Drive: 4GB

Video Memory: 32 MB

Graphics Card: ATI Rage (Did not know the model)

Other information:

Screen is tinted orange; built in color calibration did not work.

Small, unnoticeable cracks.



What do you guys think I should offer him for it?

The most I would pay is $25. You can get a good working imac g3 for $50 including shipping on eBay. The imac has problems and is obviously old. Your friend probably won't be too happy with $25 though.

Whatever it is, you get it on eBay..................

eBay is full of it.

Thanks! I was actually thinking 100$ =P .


He probably won't care about how much I pay him, though... he says he has no need for it, and it just sits there for him to stub his toe on. Thanks for your help!
