The only one we have is an old Powermac 6500/275 which still runs MacOS 8 (can't recall the exact version). It's a rather low-end Powermac for the time, with a 275 MHz PowerPC 603e, more comparable with the Performa series.

It hasn't run for weeks though, since my father got his white Macbook, and now he runs the Macbook and an eMac bought in 2004 (one of two, the other was originally mine but due to lack of use, I gave it to my mother).

Just two old twentieth anniversaries, hopefully they will become collectors items. I know you can do a G3 upgrade, and do a few more spec bumbs that will let it run osx... I might eventually do the upgrades.

Just picked up a PowerMac G4 400mhz ATI 128RagePro, Gigabit Graphite 384meg, pro keyboard, pro mouse, 19inch sony monitor for $90 au
replaced SH***Y IBM DeckStar 40g with WD80 and WD30 and upgraded memory to 704meg running 10.4.11.
Not to bad.
Now to update firmware IF I can figure out how to install OS9, Probably should have installed that first I suppose.

Edit:
Just installed 9.1 and updated Firmware.

I have a Performa 638CD (a variant of the Quadra 630) with a '040 CPU and Mac OS 8.1, as well as a tray-loading iMac G3 and a slot loading 450 MHz iMac G3, both with OS 9.2.2 and 10.4.11 (yes, the tray loader too.)

Actually, I still use OS 9 quite frequently for programs like Photoshop. I often use it in SheepShaver on my MacBook, though.
