I still have mine. It has some sort of problem that keeps it from completing the boot up. Probably needs a new logic board. In really good shape otherwise.

Underpowered, overpriced, but cool.

Classic Apple.

I think one showed up in a few episodes Seinfeld and one of the Batman movies.

Too lazy to look it up yourself? smiling smiley

Well, they're holding their "value". Anywhere from $500 to $2000 (pristine with boxes, accessories, etc). There are only a few completed sales, but I would say the $500-$800 range is the "normal" price. I paid just over $600 for mine and that was 10 years ago and (I think) it had a G3 upgrade in it as well. Bought a couple parts machines for under $300 each as well around then. I had grand plans to hack a more powerful computer into the enclosure, but never got around to it. Now I should just replace the display in one of those with an iPad.

OS 7.6.1 was one of my favorites. Talk about "snappy", it was a solid OS (from what I remember anyway).

The precursor to the:

LCD iMac (Leapfrogging the CRT iMacs)

Magic Trackpad (Positionable trackpad)

AppleTV (buit in TV tuner)

And even aesthetic metallic enclosures! (pearl flake paint on plastic).

Nice vintage Jonathan Ive with hair in the video smiling smiley
