About this machine: The Apple Power Macintosh G3 succeeded the beige Power Macintosh G3 as Apple's top of the line workstation. It being the first Power Mac released after the iMac, it ushered in a radical new design that would live on in the Power Mac G4 and G5 series and the Mac Pro. It had a colorful plastic case with handles on each corner, and the logic board was mounted to a door on the right side of the computer. This machine was functioning flawlessly, except parts were removed from it to repair the Power Macintosh G4 in the collection. The missing parts are: memory, CD/Zip drive, PRAM battery, and PCI slot covers.
