yep, i have an imac G4 too, but it's not realy a historic model so i didn't list it. I also forgot to list my Apple Lisa 1, wich I bought a few months ago on ebay (it was mislabled as a Lisa 2/5, so i got a once-in-a-lifetime deal, at a huge discount compared to what the lisa 1 is worth).

I have a PowerBook G3 "Pismo" FireWire. It can boot in to Mac OS 9.2.2 or older (Mac OS 8 minimum). There is installed Tiger and 9.2.2. In a last month i have upgrade for my PowerBook. I installed new (old) processor card. And now i have a PowerBook with PowerPC 7410LE G4 550Mhz from Daystar. It have a 512mb RAM. Earler there was a PowerPC 750 G3 500Mhz. Good notebook with some potential. It have an AirPort, SuperDrive and new 80 gb hdd. And great condition...

Macintosh Plus with a whopping 1MB of RAM. Never got the courage to clip the resistor and put in the extra SIMMs :(

PowerMac 8100 160MB of RAM, running OS 8.1 with a 1GB hard drive and a zip drive. This was probably my favorite Mac, unfortunately the processor went about five years ago and never got together the money to fix it

Apple ][ GS Never got the thing to boot, was given to me by someone who knew I was into the older hardware

LC 630 can't quite remember if this was upgraded from stock RAM, HD, etc. but I do recall it ran System 8.0 and had a heck of a time trying to get the DOS card to work

Powermac G3 B&W 128MB RAM, 10GB drive, 450MHz G3, running Panther/OS9.2.2, thinking of turning into a network server

Powermac G4 Quicksilver256MB RAM, 40GB drive, 800MHz single G4, Panther/OS9.2.2, this is still a great machine :huh:


Now, I've been scouring wantads for a Powerbook G3 Pismo. Mainly since it will run OSX, OS9 and the prices don't seem to be too bad for a fairly speedy notebook

If you put a little more RAM in that thing, you'll have a pretty speedy little computer there ;)
Congrats on your nice find! :D

If i put in say 512mb will it handle Tiger, I am just about finished Downloading the 4 CD version.

I can go raid a office full of old PC`s ready to be given to chrity for some ram. ( just popped down there and all i could manage to find was 128mb sticks. grabbed two of them so its now the iMac G3 500mhz has 256mb ram )

Hummm ......where should I start . A rare mac classic with the clear case , SE-30 , 8100/80 , 7200/90 , Powerbook 5300 , Powerbook 520C and last but not least a II CI . I used to do parts for these things until I went into semi-retirement from this business so I bought stuff by the pallet and just kept some of it for my own personal museum.
