Can't go wrong when it's free!
#1312645 - 09/05/06 03:59 PM

So yesterday, the day I didn't want to work (Labor Day) I went to take trash out. There are 2 dumpsters, one is for cardboard /Paper ONLY and other for trash, I throw the trash in the trash dumpster, then Opened the cardboard dumpster... and I saw in perfect condition, an iMac Slot Loading G3!! I took it out, and it had the power cable, keyboard, and the tiny mouse, all clean and didn't smell like [censored], so I powered it up inside the building, and guess what?! Works great!!



The previous 'owner' deleted everything except the system folder, but I'm restoring the OS, it is AirPort capible, I might sell it off or give it to a friend. Dunno. Not a bad computer for something in a dumpster

Coolest thing I ever found in the trash was a Lanzar bandpass box with 2 500W RMS Lanzar subs in it... both worked great too!

Too bad it's friggen huge, otherwise I would have kept the box. Gave it to my g/f's brother in law for his Scirocco.
