I think I've heard people here saying they wish they had one... Don't know anything about this seller, but it seems to be a good operation.

It's $135 + shipping - don't know if that's reasonable or not...

I don't see many - thought someone might be interested...

I gave away three of my functioning Cubes plus shipping on the For Sale forum. Nobody claimed the fourth. But I see that they can go for a couple of hundred dollars:

My son plays vintage games on ours.
Bejeweled and Collapse and Squish and Apple Works.
Except for the WiFi and internet it is a fully functioning Cube.
We have the speakers out in the shed and run a iMic to the monitor speakers.
I have replaced many pieces to keep that piece of nostalgia going.

Bernie, what OS are you using? I have a copy of MYST that runs on 9.1 and one disc (#3) on OSX. I have some parts and AirPort cards and the like for Cubes and G3's iMacs.
I hate to throw it in the recycle and anyone interested just PM me and help clean out the shop.

Guts of a mini into a cube case would be sweet. Of course, you would lose all the coolness of flipping it over and taking it out...

If someone were to give me a working one I'd take it because I always wanted one. But beyond farting around with it I doubt it would actually get used.

I’ll consider reasonable offers for my Dual-Boot MDD with the matching 17” LCD Flat Panel.

I still have that FW 5.25' external case that I use (rarely) for cd/dvds. A fricken TANK with an internal power supply. It will never die!

So it looks like (from the link) that he got wasted at a Duran Duran show and was never seen again.

This is the best use for one. Painful to do anything on it other than maybe wordprocessing.

Nope... he's been hanging out in my garage for the last couple of years. Cheapskate won't even pay for his own beers, keep sneaking mine outta the fridge when I'm not looking.

I was wondering if that was the mini me. People have asked about the disappearance.


I've got a working Cube too, but haven fired it up in a long time. I've got the upgrade Radion card that should have had a bigger heat sink or fan, complete with blown caps. I've thought about replacing them but haven't even got around to getting them so they too can sit on the shelf. LOL

I've got a 17 and 23" acrylic ACD I'd like to run off the Cube. These days I'd probably just use it as a digital picture frame and maybe music, especially if it could be done in OS9.
