Hey, I have one, but it won't boot up. Displaced my back moving it.

I used a "molar mac" for a few years as a school teacher. Great, flexible. and upgradable design. Nice clear display, a very easy computer to use.I have one here, G3,266 processor,A/Vwings card, 256 ram, 4G drive,and I am very pleased with it.

I have a question: Where is the hard drive located inside the AIO? I just bought an 8GB drive.

Pull out the tray in the back, its mounted underneath the logic board on the same type of tray that the CD drive is mounted on. You don't even need to remove the tray from the machine, just pull it out until it stops.

Anyone know how to put games on the G3 AIO using windows vista and an emac?

 

Comment by Kasey Smith on May 5, 2011 at 9:20pm
Well, theres a number of ways. I'll just go with OS9 because OSX is useless on a beige G3/Tray loading iMac. You can either download them directly to the AIO wtih internet explorer, or you can turn file sharing on on the eMac and connect to that, or you can install DAVE (or use OS X 10.2+) to connect to a windows machine.

I do have OS 9, but don't have internet on the G3 or the eMac.
