iBook G3 Project

Through an odd search and a miscategorized eBay listing, I landed this cool contraption:





It's in pretty good shape, all things considered, and it does run. More on this one soon!

I love the iBook G3s! Such a cool design. I would love to have one of the Tangerine ones to use as a mobile Mac OS 9 machine.

Gonna tell us more about the funky ebay tactic, or is that a facebook or in person story?
I wish it was more of a "tactic" than "dumb luck" but I feel it likely boils down to the latter. I was looking for one of these Timex "iMac" clocks (not my photo) as I've got a plan for one if I can get the "right" one (they came in several sizes/styles... and I really want the red one).



I've often found these (and other related goodies) hiding in the search "Toy Computer 1999" (I swap through the years to weed out certain things) but this time I hit it big with an actual iBook hiding in there. That's probably all my "good luck" for the year used up right there! 🤭

Related, I'm also looking for a Mattel toy computer that "allegedly" sold through KB toys that used the guts from a Mattel Aquarius to run the "computer game" end of it. But I'm grasping at straws on that one- I've only got a few descriptions from a Tumblr blog to go off of there. I figure weird stuff crops up in that search all the time, and if one ever did, I'd find it. If it exists. 😬
