James and John are off this week so I thought I'd add my latest find to last week's mac reviewed from eBay, the 233 MGz G3 Desktop.
I found this G3 forgotten and stuffed in a storage rack on the loading dock of the local newspaper and bound for a landfill.
After asking if I could take it home, it happily fired right up and still works great.
This one appears to have been used in ad production and page composition due to type of software still installed. No doubt this old workhorse has seen a lot of late-night deadlines.
The performance seemed pretty zippy for the old beige desktop. When I opened it up and chased the dust bunnies away I found a 501 MHz sonnet upgrade - nice!
224 MB ram
501 MGz Sonnet Encore processor
Asante 10/1000 ethernet upgrade
