Here are some photos of my iMac G3 Snow from 2000. It's running OS X 10.4.8 Tiger. It has a 500 MHz PowerPC G3 processor, 640MB of SDRAM and a whopping 20GB hard drive.

I've found the Apple download link to update it to OS X 10.4.11. I'll try that later today.

Boy! My habit for decades is to dump my computers when I get new ones - my first PC in the mid-80s (which replaced an Apple II+ w/ two 5 1/4" floppies) had a 20 MB HD - thought that we would never fill up that capacity - HA HA!

Don't know if you're a visitor (or even a member) at the Mac Forums, but this kind of thread would go over BIG there - plenty of computer experts (especially the mods) that have Macs going back to their initial release and still working - take a look, if of interest - BTW, I'm RadDave there. Dave :)

Looks useful. I just joined. Just to be scintillatingly boring, I used my usual forum name.

Don't make me take a photo of my 6100. (I think I know under which pile of basement junk it currently resides...)

My wife occasionally fires up her Bondi G3 iMac for some ancient app that requires OS9. I've tried to explain about Sheepshaver, but inertia reigns triumphant.

Well I recently finally had to get rid of my old Mac Plus and SE 30. I still have my 7500 with faster processor. It goes between 9.2.2 and an early version of OSX.
