I have read mention of a beige machine. What is it? I thought most Macs are beige? http://macgurus.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_redface.gif

Huh. Well, that is a can of worms. Most Macs prior to MacWorld 1998 were beige. The Beige G3 is referring to the last Beige Mac....a minitower with a 233 or 266 Mhz G3. All desktop Macs since then have been Blue & White or Graphite & White minitowers...then there's the damned color spectrum of the iMacs and iBooks. See what you started? Oh...by the way, you haven't been to the Apple site in a while, huh? Man, I haven't seen a Beige Mac on the front for soooo long.

So my 8500 is a beige Mac! I was going to ask about the blue and graphite ones too! I've been out of touch with Macs but am learning http://macgurus.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. When I said most Macs I had a momentary laps and forgot about the iMACs. Thanks!

Anytime, Richard. There's a whole new world out there since your machine.
