So...I bought this G3 4 years ago from eBay. The seller sucked at packing the box and as a result, the G3 arrived damaged. The inner bezel (notorious for being brittle) cracked. Thinking I’d just replace the broken part and all would be well, I ended up getting a 50% refund on it. At the time and for at least 2 years later, I just couldn’t find the part. I ended up replacing it with an older tray loader G3 in mint condition.
I’ve finally found the part this year, but the prices for them are insane at a minimum of $60. Since I already have a mint one of these and am amassing a huge collection of desktops, I have no reason to keep a second 40 pound iMac around.
I’ll let any Oppo have it for the cost of shipping if they want it. Otherwise after the CL and eBay ads expire it’s going to Free Geek or GoodWill.
