Getting a computer for under $100 bucks...really

Right now you probably think I'm some salesman trying to rip you off and have you buy a crappy cheap computer. Well, no, I'm not. I just remember looking on the Internet for a mac and these computers came up over and over, for a little under $100.

What computer is it?

The 2001 Apple iMac Blueberry... yea back in the day they were thousand dollar "top-of-the-line" machine. Now they are cheap computers flooding eBay.

I actually bought one off these computer for a family member who wanted to learn how to use a computer, for beginners these are perfect. But for avid multi-tasking, programming, gaming, computer users, these are not ideal. Another great feature is they are actually "cool looking". No tower and monitor, the computer is the CRT monitor!

Here is some specs on these mini machines from a real eBay listing:
