I have several iMacs of which my first one was a G3 700 mhz SE snow. It got a little out dated so finally bit the bullet and bought an aluminum 20" 2.4 ghz iMac in 2008 off the refurbished section on the Apple site. Works great and plan on keeping it for next several years until they come out with a bigger screen.
I fixed up, one of the original bondi blue imacs 233 mhz with all original equipment with it. It even still has the side door still on it. I have seen many with it torn off to allow easier access to the usb. It was upgraded from 32 mb of ram, 4 gb hd, and running os 8.5 to 288 mb of ram, 20 gb hd and running os 10.3.9. Great little machine and it is being used in the community room for all to get on the internet with. Connected it up to one of the flying saucer routers by ethernet so it can surf the net just like modern imacs.
[ update] The old bondi blue has been replaced with a 1 ghz eMac running 10.5.8, with 1 gig of ram, 40 gig hard drive, and built in wifi it does a far superior job then the old bondi blue.
Plan on posting a short video on my upgraded imac snow. I added a super drive, a gig of ram and a 160 hd even though it only recognizes 128 gigs. Great machine which I still use as a juke box and fax machine, cheaper than buying the usb modem.
I just got an original bondi blue iMac in perfect condition with everything original on it. It even still has the side door. Could not help my self and upgraded it to 10.3.9 along with 256 ram and a 20 GB hard drive. It runs slower under 10.3 then under os 9, but easier to use. It will most likely sit in the closet most of the time unless I can try to talk someone in trying out a mac and loan it out to them. Great machine.
[update] Currently I have a 27" i7 iMac, my old 700mhz iMac snow, and a 1 ghz dual processor mirror door powermac tower running 10.5.8 with 2 gigs of ram. I live in a small apartment and have been getting rid of my mac stuff that is not being immediately being used by one of the current macs. Threw out all kinds of cables and adapters that were just taking up room. Will take to the local Apple mac meeting to see if anybody there wants the stuff, but unlikely since that is where I got most of it in the first place.
