Hello all. I just sold my pc laptop and picked up a G3 Lombard. Its been up graded with 512 Meg of RAM and a 60 Gig 7400 rpm Harddrive. I'm going to be using it for my MP3 jukebox and playing around with OS X which is allready on it. I have an even older 1400cs 166 that my brother is using in school but as you know OS 9 was the end of the road for it. Anyway just wanted to say hello and I'll see you all in the forums from here on out.

Welcome to the forums, and congratulation on your new Mac. I'm personally quite fond of older Mac's - they're great.

Sawtooth76, Funny, that is the very Mac that I started with OSX on 1.5 years ago now. Got it from my friends work MINT for $130! They were selling off all their old Macs for $.25 a MHZ, so I jumped at it!!! It was loaded too with new 40Gig 120GXP IBM drive, 768 Megs RAM and DVD, Modem and in mint shape. Sawtooth G4/500. Still use it for a lot of stuff here at the house. Upped the RAM to 1.5GB and HDD's to 120Gigs. It's never let me down. Real workhorse of a computer!!

Welcome aboard!

I'm still amazed that the older macs can still run the latest and greatest OS X version.

By the way if you want to have some fun reading details about every mac ever created, check this out. Interesting stuff.

My parents had an Apple //c when I was a kid. They still have it (in storage) and I think it still works.
