    Hmm

    The information you provided is not, if I'm not mistaken, public. For instance, running the serial number--and according to my local mac store this is a perfectly permissible and safe way to sell...

    Doh. It occurs to me that I should have mentioned my willingness to sell the machine outright (in case that isn't a given)--just seems that I should shoot for a trade, since I'd like to come out the...

    WTB Apple mini PPC motherboard

    Hi all,

    I'm in the market for a PPC mini mobo, preferably a 1.25GHz, though any PPC should work. (Would you believe that I can't even find an outrageously priced one on ebay?)

    USB2/FW400 HDD Enclosures and old G3 iBooks

    This seems to me primarily a USB question, but I might be wrong.
