Specs: OSX 10.3, ??
I'll be getting a G3 iMac tomorrow with OS X 10.3 installed, I'm guessing that since the G3 is fairly old now it will probably have something around the 128/256 mark. I was just wondering if the G3 needs any specific RAM or if regular PC100/PC133 SDRAM will work in it. I have 4 sticks 256MB PC133 all the same brand and type so if the G3 uses normal stuff I can just use that. So should that work fine or will I need to resort to flea bay to get the right stuff? Thanks.

There is nothing to learn from someone who already agrees with you.

By the looks of what crucial wanted to sell me the G3 uses standard memory. I'll be using what I have.

Yep, put in some ram I had laying around and it works fine. I picked it up today, Its a 400MHz / 128MB system. I boosted it to 512 and its humming along much better. Its got OS X 10.3, I'm pretty happy with it, but I have no idea how to use it... been a M$ user for ever. Although this is a nice little PC and OS X seems ok, converting to Apple is certianly not on the agenda.
