Thread: Mac G3/300

  1. #1

    Mac G3/300

    Is this worth buying used for a couple hundred bucks?

    Beige MT G3/300
    128 MB of RAM, 8 GB internal drive, internal CD-ROM, modem: none, includes keyboard and mouse, internal 100 MB Zip. I don't think any OS is on it. I can upgrade some of the componants.

    Someone said its similar to a i386 machine with around 600mhz or so.

    Thnx.

    Hello,

    I probably would not buy it, if the machine is going to perform par with 600 MHz x86 boxes, since I have seen better deals. Check out Prefix Technologies for some good deals on old computers.

    Do you think it's worth buying from ebay? I used to buy from it in late 90s, or when it first started but I haven't dealt with it since.

    definitely man, i bought a 500mhz ibook from ebay for $230...missing a few parts, but the total for the laptop and the parts was still way below the minimum retail price i could find of $500

    What is a good Linux distro to install on this type of Mac? The specs listed above on another post of mine.

    Thnx.

    I'd say go with ubuntu...it's really quite fast...although mandrake 10.1 might be nice, but I haven't tested it yet...
