Does anyone have an older Mac they’d like to turn into some ammo or beer money?
I need one that has at least a factory-equipped Firewire port, which is the base minimum to run OS X 10.4 “Tiger”. The oldest machines that fit the description are the slot-loading CRT iMacs, 350MHz and faster. I don’t care whether it’s an all-in-one like a G3 or G4 iMac/eMac, a G4 tower, a Mac mini, or an iBook/Powerbook, as long as it works and has a built-in Firewire port.
I want to set up a Mac in my office as a Scrivener-only writing machine for typing up my handwritten stuff into a second draft, and Scrivener needs at least Tiger to run.
I’ll pay you fair market value and shipping, and you get bragging rights on future novel releases, because your old Mac will be the machine that produced the publisher-ready manuscript copy.
