    i'm interested in acquiring an old apple power PC. ideally one that looks like this: :cool: So basically an early G3 beige or earlier model.

    Can anyone recommend a good forum that may have a following for these old systems? I'd even be interested in getting a broken one, as long as the case was in good condition :)

    :( gutted... really like the simple look of the thing.. I want two of them really. One upgraded with apple stuff as much as possible, and the other cunningly converted in to a PC Mod

    Any chance they're still sitting in the dumpster? lol

    I saw one of those at the surplus place a few months ago. I passed on it because I already have two G4 Power Mac's that I'm not doing anything with. I don't need a third with less capability....

    I'm sure you could find one on eBay... have you looked?

    yea.. i missed a good one yesterday.. sold for £12 with monitor tablet and other extras :( would have been a bargain.

    would be nice to find an online community for them.. hopefully find someone willing to part with a good one

    There are some sites around, like Low End Mac and www.xlr8yourmac.com but no active forums that I know of. Of course I was looking mostly for the G4 series...

    It's buried Judas, buried. Your grammar mistakes will make my eyes bleed one of these days.
