    Hey I was wondering if anyone had any iMac's for sell, right now I have a pretty good computer (can use some more RAM tho) and it runs smooth but I've never had a Mac before but I'm kinda broke so...

    I was wondering if anyone knew a place to buy used iMac's off the net, I was lookin for a price around $150-300, and OS X on it.

    I don't know much at all about Mac's but I'm really interested in getting one, can anyone help?

    $300 mac that runs OS X...

    these are the macs that can run OS X: http://www.apple.com/macosx/upgrade/requirements.html

    the older beige boxes and blue and white G3s are cheap now. you can probably find one of those somewhere for under $300. i don't know any place online that sells old macs though.

    //edit: if you're willing to spend a little more i would try to find an older G4 tower. OS X runs much faster on a G4 system.
