Photo Appreciation Post for my Power Mac G3 Desktop. I use this machine as a file sharing and negative scanning workhorse, but she has got a handful of quirks that i am having trouble sorting out. mostly with her PCI slots, they get power but its been really stubborn about recognizing cards installed. - thinking i have to reinstall 9 from a non machine specific disk… i have been using my iBook G3 disk.. which i think might be the root of the issue.
The Beige G3 is a third-generation Power Mac. It has a new motherboard with a faster system bus than earlier models, a third-generation PowerPC CPU, uses a completely different type of memory, has a different way of upgrading the CPU, and includes a personality card slot. The Power Mac G3 comes in desktop and minitower configurations and replaces the 7300, 8600, and 9600.
Functional clear case prototype built in 1986, intended to study air flow and component placement. This particular model (owned by a German collector) is still fully operational, featuring a 20 Gb internal hard disk and 4 Gb of RAM.
