I've been offered an imac g3 262 for $20 i know this is a good deal because i ordered this machine for the person a year ago off of ebay for $120. So should i go for it? also would i be able to run a linux distribution on it?

I see a chance of getting a g3 also, but not sure of the specs on it at this time. They guy say it is a green colored version.

Does anybody have any ideas on what the specs may be for this g3?

I'm going to go look at it sometime this weekend. He wants $25 for it. I guess if nothing else I could install linux on it.

How can I tell a slot loading drive from a tray loading one?

Thnx.

Hi there GhostDawg,
