What to do with 3 Powermac G3 desktops - 02/19/09 10:32 AM

Hi,

I've never attempted a case or hardware mod before, but I have the machines mentioned in the subject line collecting dust. They all are stock except for RAM upgrades and are running fine. I'd like to know if I can salvage parts from the 3 to make one machine that will act as a jukebox running some version of OS X, or to build the clear case mod.

Also, I would like to know if I can use one of the machines to build the electronic newsrack mod seen here http://www.designondeadline.com/digitalnewsstand/index.html.

Are they the beige models? I had a blast modding and upgrading one of those. The rest could go to charity or a school. Don't toss them out, that would be a waste.
