    iMac G4 17"

    Finally found some time to re-instal operating system (10.4 Tiger). Dusted her down.

    1Ghz G4

    In the many years I have owned it (first owner) I have updated these bits:
    - DVD drive was replaced and hasn't really had many spins, burns and reads no probs
    - HDD is a 260GB I think, anyway this is a bit more than the standard 80gb it came with, I think it was 80.
    - Upped the RAM to 1.25gb

    I have also had it opened and dusted down previously.

    There's a hairline scratch less than a cm on the screen, which I tried to capture but could not. You cannot see it while its on.

    Overall its in pretty good condition. I have the original mouse. No speakers, although the internal speaker is not bad. An Apple keyboard, the one with black keys.

    I think £60 is fair. I don't have the box so collection only - Crystal Palace.

    Any questions, dont hesitate.

    Hi,

    Does this have WiFi? Also, what's the performance of I player or you tube like through the web browser?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    It doesn't have WiFi.

    I can say with memory that it handled youtube ok, not HD mind. iPlayer is different since it uses flash and a version that cannot be run on 10.4 without performing some sort of hack, or something otherwise complicated.

    Thanks for the interest

    Thanks for the info. Lovely machine but I think I'm going to have to pass as I wanted something for the kids that would handle Flash/iPlayer ok.
