    Hi Youngzink,
    having Apple Stores here (I live in Canada, by the way) wouldn't help you much in your case, since there is almost nothing available for that ancient Mac.
    And by the way, writing in CAPITALS means SCREAMING in .net language - IF you didn't know...

    Upthread you have been informed what you can run (Panther, 10.3) on your Mac.

    It's entirely up to you to go do something with that information.

    Hi again,
    Apple Stores in N.A. don't stock anything older than OS 10.6. You can check for yourself here:

    I have a "Smurf" Blue & White G3 running Mac OS X.4.11
    It has a 400Mhz PPC Processor with 512MB ram. I installed Tiger on it just Yesterday. To Make sure your G3 can run Tiger you need to check the Motherboard.

    "The Rev. 2 B&W G3 uses a different motherboard, has an additional drive bracket, incorporates a new IDE controller chip (marked 402) that supports UDMA-33, and includes a faster version of the ATI Rage 128 video card. 350 MHz and 400 MHz models may have either motherboard; 450 MHz versions only shipped from the factory with the Rev. 2 board. The improved IDE controller supports the standard master/slave drive configuration and solves a drive corruption problem. The Rev. 1 board isn't stable with many modern hard drives on the built-in IDE bus because the controller doesn't support UDMA (Mac OS X does an end run around this problem by disabling UDMA on the Rev. 1 motherboard)."

    If you have Rev. 1 you don't want Tiger, use Panther... Don't quote me on that one but I'm for sure about using Tiger with Rev. 2 I've got two G3 both Rev. 2 versions. Just that one doesn't have any ram... Anyone got PC100? lol

    Just as a note, the RAM and OS will not be able to be found at an Apple store anyway. A couple good places would be Amazon, eBay, or your local Craigslist.

    jeez, lighten up!

    From what I have read there are a lot people giving valuable information but you'll stick at yelling at them. Waste of time and energy.

    I got an old grey-flavored 600MHZ slot-loading CRT-iMac with 10.2 installed on it. I want to get this oldie into shape for my sons (10, 6, 4) so they can use it as their trial-mac; work with lego designer & mindstorms, play some qts...

    I think from what I've read I can be safe with 10.4 Tiger. Only setback is the price-tag; quite steep for an old system (about 130-200 dollars against 30 for Snow Leopard...). But I'll give it a try because it is cheaper than buying them a new Apple...
