    There are 20 iMacs at my job, but I can only buy ONE of them. They are all the same.

    PowerPC G3 400 MHz
    128 MB RAM
    10 GB
    Ethernet
    CD-ROM

    It's the apple where the monitor and computer are all one.

    It would be $100. Waste of money? Great deal?

    is it a slot-loading machine? What color is it? if it's not at least a slot-load optical drive I'd say forget it, but for $100 it might make a good machine to fuck around with Tiger pre-release etc. however with 128MB RAM you will not want to run any version of OS X on it, so factor in like a 256 or 512 MB chip to your total cost on the machine.

    It'll run OS 9 comfortably with 128MB RAM though, if you need to run 9 for whatever reason. Like old games :hsd:

    Put some more memory in it and install OS X 10.3 and you should be golden.

    I cant remember which yours is, but it can hold either 512 or 1gb of ram via 2 ram slots. Which would cost, as little as 45$ x 256mb or 80~90$ x 512mb.

    $100 is a steal for that machine. Go for it.
