I was a Thrift store last week and i sa an old Apple I-Mac for $15.00, I ask if i could use a plug
to test it out….well it fired up, but without a mouse or Keyboard its only a B&W Display and it
hangs with a nag screen…….Well i got it home and it works fine with USB keyboard and mouse
The only problem is i think the Ethernet port is dead? But it is still a kewl find i think, and it is
My only Mac. below are some specs i think i have a REV.B?
