    Transfer of data question
    I have about 2 GB of data on an older G3 that I'd like to transfer over to a new iMac desktop and a Macbook Pro before I totally retire the G3. The G3 has only a serial port, whereas the newer Macs have USB ports, etc. Is there a way to efficiently move the data between the Macs? Thanks!

    Specs:
    Late 2013 27" iMac, iPad 3, iPhone 6s+, iPhone 6+, 3 iPods, El Capitan
    Efficiently? Probably not. Without a firewire or USB port on the G3, one way would be to remove the hard drive and place it in a carrier or use an adapter. Then attach it to your new machines and transfer the data that way.

    Specs:
    21.5" iMac i5 2.9 Ghz, 15" MBPro i7 2.0 Ghz, iPhone 5, iPhone 4s, ATV2, ATV3, iPad2, iPad Mini
    Plus one for the Hard Drive Adapter.
    They are not expensive ($30 to $60) and it could be very useful as a backup device after you are done with the G3 Data Tranfer.
