M235i Thread of Finds!

Recommended Posts

I feel like this is something that I should've started a long time ago. Here and there, I acquire some finds that I just need to share. Sometimes they show up on the r/VintageApple sub, but I think it is time to start logging it in one place too. I will be showing some of the more recent finds from the past year or so, starting with one of the most recent catches, then moving to the stuff that falls into my hands as they come.

 

First Up, my newest catch, a Rev A. iMac G3. IOB with everything down to the plastic protectors that came with the computer in shipping. Price - Free. Really pays to have people looking out for you on the FaceBook Swap groups. Met the seller, turned out it was her first computer that she had purchased with her own money and was her first time on the internet as well. She couldn't see it go to the recycler but needed it gone. I was happy to take into my wings a machine so incredibly clean. I'll let the photos speak for themselves.

VERY cool! That reminds me of being a sophomore in my high school IT dept. and getting to unbox a fleet for our brand new student lab, and then a set of 1st rev bondi G3 towers and matching CRTs. They were so un-beige even the PC guys on the team couldn't help but admire them.

Those pics are taking me back, man. Very, very cool find!

Thanks! As a sophomore in HS right now, I could only wish I was in an era where computers were moving at such a rate, and the colors so beautiful. All we have now are the standard black office Dells. They're great, don't get me wrong, but there just isn't anymore passion in them like they used to have. Oh well, I guess i'll settle for working on friends MacBook Pro's and laughing at them when they complain of the keyboards breaking and screens discoloring when they (well, parents) spent $2000 on a machine.
