It's a 350mhz blue & white G3, with 640mb ram, a 6GB Hard Drive, A DVD ROM, and OS 10.4.11 installed.

It as two 400 Mbps FireWire ports (not bootable from FireWire), two 12 Mbps USB 1.1 ports , one ADB port
& a 10/100Base-T ethernet connector on back of computer.

plus it has a SCSI card, so if you have any old SCSI peripherals you were dying to use... this is your baby. :D

Comes with a keyboard, a monitor (there's a Mac 17" CRT studio display of uncertain future longevity and a perfectly good NEC 17" CRT to choose from. Or take Both!)

I just installed the DVD ROM drive and Tiger OS today, so I can say that it definitely works fine.

I will also throw in a SCSI Zip Drive & what might be the last working 44MB SyQuest Drive on earth! With a bunch of disks!

All this can be yours for a mere $100 smackers! *G*

I'll be honest here, this isn't a heavy lifting Mac, but if all you need is to do is Blog, word process, email and surf the web, it can do all these things admirably, or serve as a kid's first computer, that you dont have to worry about losing a big investment if they spill grape soda on it.

I'm terribly keen to get it out of my house! *G*

(unrelated to this mac- because it wont play nice with it,and believe me i tried to make it, is and el cheapo Dell printer - was a promotional freebie. It's free to the first person who asks for it)

Could be interested in the el cheapo Del printer... what's the scoop on it?

it came as a freebie to J's office along with some computers they bought. His boss gave it too him, but there's simply not a working printer description for the mac.

I looked all over the intarwebs.

Ah poo! So the printer won't work with the macs. *le sigh*

I know that House of Musical Traditions has a love of old Macs, they use them as sales terminals. I'll ask around, but don't hold it for me.

Since I know very little about Macs... Does "firewire" mean the same thing as "wireless"?

Provided I can access things over the wireless, I might very well be over at your place with the cash in hand...

Firewire is a particular type of *wired* connection on macs, like USB, but faster. good for connecting hard drives, cameras and such.

this computer has no wireless capabilities. No wifi, no bluetooth.

you could retrofit a wifi card ( into one of the availble PCI slots, but it hasn't got one right now.

(if *you* buy it and get a card, I will help you install it, if you like)

If those USB ports are functioning, you can also get a little USB Wireless Ethernet Dongle like this:

Since I've gotten used to having a Mac around the house -- and since the one I've got is starting to make grinding noises from the hard drive...

I'll take it, please.

Printer, not so much.

Payment and pickup/delivery I'm sure can be arranged since we know where we'll be for many of the next few months. :)
