Worth It?

in General Discussion edited January 2014
My University is selling off-lease computers. These are all the details I know of (if it ain't there, I don't know).

Apple G3-350, 64mb Ram, 6G harddrive, internal zip drive, Apple display

16" viewable screen.

7 available at $250 each

Is it worth the $250?

I want another Mac to play around with for a few months and then sell (on ebay or something) after I upgrade it a bit.

I was told these were LCD displays, it doesn't sound like it though.

    Sounds reasonable to me. though with 6gig hard disk, dun expect to store lots of music and movies.

    But if it is only for a few months, this should be ok

    I expect you're right, viewable area normally refers to CRTs. I'd check the condition, perhaps people don't look after lease computers in the same way as their own.

    definitely worth it.

    I still work (occasionally) on a beige G3 @ 266 Mhz with only 4 GB of HD, and it still is quite allright. Hey, and with the screen included at that price, you can't miss. Do it now!
