Thanks for the heads-up, but I already have an unused iMac on my
dressing table on which I could run OS X first. ;)
The 6500 is a little beige for my taste by previous owner just spent
right about two grand (real money, not dollars;) on a Powerbook and
so I imagine that the PowerMac was a similarly high-end machine at
the time. I guess it's not that old, but it's in very good condition
and with o/s disks & the boxed Virtual PC software I feel it's quite
a characteristic Mac of its time.
Since I need to find the time to wipe the hard-drive there are a few
days in which to speak up before it goes on the local freecycle, bit
I know it'll be snapped up in no time on there.
