    A friend just called me up, hes home from boarding school, and has an old iMad (the colored one) that hes gonna give me. Its got tiger, and pretty basic internals.

    Is there anything that i can do to up the performance? As far as hooking up an extra internal HD (i tihnk i've got an 80gig), or getting another mobo/processor ram etc and making a decent computer?

    Could i put in an airport card?

    imac g3? The fastest ones ive seen at work have been 600mhz, the later ones have airport.

    Maximum RAM you would want to put in is 1GB, 2x512.

    mmkay, thanks...

    Was the airport just a normal airport card? You think i could buy one on ebay? Extreme or not.

    Or maybe get an external wireless thing i guess.
