Good point David.

This has happened with a few friends who converted over to Macs, only a
few months later to get a new one.

Any suggestions on a good mail order place to get a refurbished Mac?

Heck, even a new G3 iMac might be a good selection as well.

Here's the $799 version:

     128MB SDRAM
     20GB Ultra ATA drive
     CD-ROM Drive
     RAGE 128 Ultra w/16MB
     10/100BASE-T Ethernet
     56K fax modem
     15-inch display (13.8-inch VIS)
     Harman Kardon Speakers
     VGA Video Mirroring
     2 USB & 2 FireWire ports
     AirPort Ready

If you're willing to spend $200 more, you can get a G3/600, 256MB RAM,
40GB HD and a CD-RW drive.
