those slow machines off their hands.
It is almost certain that those iMac's are the PPC variety and have the CRT screen. Yes??
Hi everyone, This is my first time using Mac. I used PC til Vista then migrated to PCLOS Linux. A local school that is closing gave me 11 IMAC computers. Two of them are completely dead. The others will load to a blinking "?". I suspected the drives were wiped clean or no good. I checked them all and found them all to be bad. Then they gave me an EMAC which was dead also but I found the drive to be good. I installed the EMAC drive in one of the IMACs and it booted to OS 10.4.6. I installed 512 megs of PC133 in it. The problem is that it is sooooo slow. It takes forever to close and open windows. Drags something fierce. Is it possible that this 500 mhz IMAC isn't supposed to have OS X on it thus making it slow. Maybe 9? I have three OS 9 disks but they won't boot while holding the "C" key down at startup. Looks like they might work to downgrade.
