Sorry about the delay, I got distracted when I went to boot it up. I do not know what happened(and it happened while it was not in use for the past couple years) but now the fan runs full throttle constantly... Something must have failed on the logic board because I have _never_ heard the fan start up even when under heavy use in summer. Only the short burst while resetting it or plugging it in without a battery and a dead internal backup battery.
Anyway, some scans and images.

The RAM and CPU daughter card are not actually relevant to this thread since they did not come with this PowerBook but I tossed them on the scanner anyway for my records because it was faster and easier to do them with everything else. Just ignore them.
Yea I know the scans are bad, the scanner is not intended for anything but flat surfaces. I should have just dug out a tripod and some lights. *shrug*
Apple most likely used the same one between the two but we may as well look into it.
One thing that I can not recall seeing in images of other G3 PowerBooks online is this.http://img16.imageshack.us/img16/3101/00000372.jpg
Now, to be fair most images online are not great quality and size and that little bump is easy to miss and can easily hide in most lighting.
Dana's image does not look like it has a bump there.. But that could easily be just different lighting or a bad angle or even touched up in photoshop.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:WallstreetII.jpg
Anyone else have a lump like that on their PowerBook? Is it just a defect? Does it indicate something?
Also, the front was mentioned in another thread:http://img509.imageshack.us/img509/3286/10005352.jpg
It had a hard life before I bought it.
Here is some stuff that ASP reports:
name: ATI 264LT-G
model: ATI LT-G
card ROM: 113-xxxxx-1.0028
vendor ID: 1002
As usual ASP is on crack wrt the CPU speed. 300MHz CPU on a 66MHz bus = 4.5454 multi. But 450MHz CPU with a 4.5454 multi = 100MHz bus.
GaugePro correctly reports 300MHz CPU and 66MHz bus.
If anyone wants some larger or differently cropped images I still have some massive .tif files. Just ask.
Also, if you want me to run a certain app to gather information just let me know what specific app and what data you had in mind. It would be good to establish certain required information from certain apps that we can get everyone to run for a proper comparison.
Soo.. Yea, everybody pull your WS/PDQs out of wherever you have them hidden and post up some info.
