Success at last!! I woke up this morning to a note in my e-mail from eBay, informing me that I'd won an auction for an Apple/Macintosh iBook G3 Clamshell Blueberry, with WiFi!! Hmm, lets see if this works... Linkyloo Lets see if that worked :)

I'm as giddy as a little school girl :) I put in a bid last night, not expecting to win, as the auction still had 5 hours to go, and I fully expected the bidding to go well over $150, and out of my price range. Imagine my surprise when I woke up this morning to find that the winning bid had been mine, and only went for $73!!!!

The auction stated that the battery does not appear to hold a charge, but it does come with a power adapter. So I'll have to be plugged in for a bit, until I figure out which battery I need to get for this particular model, but that's okay. It doesn't come with any CDs or paperwork, but does have Mac OS 9 installed. If I understand correctly, that's referred to as the 'Classic' OS?

I'll have to see what I can find for beginner's books for this critter, after it arrives, and get to doing some Mac computing!!

Once again, Woohoo for me!!

Hope your day is starting off as fun as mine!!

1)OS 9 is, indeed, "Classic" OS. If you are over thirty, it is what you will remember from your school daze as how a Mac screen looked.

2) Batteries will set you back about as much as the computer did. They are very easy to change.

3) is your friend. They will have links a-go-go for anything you need.

Sweet! Thanks for the go-to Tam. I'll head that way this evening and see what I can find. I'm already jonesing for my little clamshell to hurry up and get here so I can start playing :)
