How much should a honest pawn shop :lol give for an Imac 3g with I believe Panther OS as far as cash goes.

probably not a lot, that machine is really dated and they haven't made them in almosta decade. If you have Panther installed (OSX 10.3) Then you most certainly don't have a G3, you either have a G4 or an early G5.

If you do have a G3 though you'd be lucky to get 20 bucks, nobody wants round monitors anymore.

Some of the later versions of the iMac G3 could have had Mac OS X Panther manually installed on there.

Best advice is to put it on eBay. Check how much your pawn shop asks first though but after checking out eBay they had iMac's going for $50 or so. And there is still a market for them, my friend bought an iMac G3 just so he could play Titanic: Adventure Out of Time.

thanx QFGF and Brooms my aunt is going to buy it for $50. :) Every pawn shop had an excuse not to take it. 1st Ooh it's not a flat screen. 2nd WORKER: OK lets have a look at it. Yea I think I'll take it. MANAGER: No we don't take these anymore. 3rd WORKER: Where did you get it. ME: Yard sell. WORKER: Ooh I can't take it cause it's not registered to you. >:

ya Broom is right, I forgot how long the production cycle on that thing was. Mac's do have really great resale value in most cases though.
