"On these systems you are far more limited by extremely slow bus speeds vs. hard drive/SSD.
An SSD in one of these systems is really a waste of money. There are adapters that take Compact Flash cards which people use, but these are more about…"
"A few years ago I bought an iSub, Griffin iFire, some pro speakers and a few other odds and ends for AUS$80.
I have found that the iSub works ok on my G4 Cube and iMac G3 systems. Both are running 10.4.11
There are a few little bugs with…"
"I'm with you James, I think the Flower Power iMac is one of the most beautiful computers ever released. I don't understand what all the hate is for this iMac. It is simply stunning.
Maybe I'm weird but I also find the…"
Last week an OMP MessagePad fell into my hands.The unit came with 2 rechargeable battery packs (one is destroyed except for the plastic case), an in pieces battery recharger (I don't really trust this to function at all) and no battery holders for alkalines.I was wondering if anyone knew of somewhere where I could find some battery holders, information on trying to re-cell the original NiCad battery packs and or the best way to recharge the NiCad packs.eBay doesn't have anything, and a lot of…See More
"I've cleaned out about 1/2 of my collection. Mainly iMac G3's that I didn't really need, Apple clones and beige systems such as 5500's and 5400's. I was happy to just give them away really as they weren't…"
That's a very nice collection and very nicely displayed! I like how you did your photos in black and white with the colored Apple logos.
You have a few iMac G3s I don't have: Sage is the one I really wanted but just don't have the room for now. I've had two Snows but gave them away since it looks too much like Flower Power and Dalmatian from the front side anyway. Right now I have an extra tray loading Lime sitting on the floor (for about 3 or 4 months now) that a friend got from the school where she teaches. I already had one when she gave it to me but I couldn't let it go to the trash! It does have a really cool virtual frog dissection program that we had great fun playing (I hated the real dissections in school so this is way better!! No real frogs died and no smell!!).
You'll have to post some more photos of the rest of the iMacs. I love to see how other people display their Macs.
Yes, I got the PB Duo 250 (Yay!). And get this. I recently found in my clean up a Lacie external ADB FM tuner. So I have a solution for me, you need to find one of these now!
(I Didn't know such a thing existed til I found this, I still need to locate the driver disks in the boxes of stuff I have)
Good morning ! I just tried to find out how the shipping costs to Australia are - in the other direction they seem quite moderate. I can't believe that our services here will offer similar conditions, even for such a small item.
If I were you, I'd bid on this:
A few notes on the PAL TV.
There really aren't too many vintage Macs on Australia's eBay dept.
Any 5200 here goes for a ridiculously low price, often at starting bid (1€).
I may slaughter one for you - but the TV/FM combo is extremely rare here, too.
Usually these cards are found in 5500 systems only, I don't know exactly (the TAM IS a 5500 system).
I have my eyes on eBay UK, Netherlands and Germany, sometimes (but only as a matter of interest) in the States. They ARE rare.
