Hey all, this is my first post but I'm a long-time Mac user. My first Mac ever was an old LC, and I still have an old Motorola StarMax 3000 with a G3 upgrade card.
Over the years I've fallen behind in Mac technology. I've dabbled in it from time to time, but I'm still sorta lost when it comes to OS X.
I'd like to learn OS X and sorta transition back into the Mac world, but inexpensively (college student). I was thinking of purchasing an older Apple and maybe upgrading it a bit to run OS X.
So my question is this: what recommendations can you make for running OS X cheaply ($500 or less)? I was considering getting an old beige G3 and buying a G4 upgrade card and some RAM. If it is possible to get OS X running on non-G3 based systems (like an old clone), I'd be all for that too.
Thanks in advance!
