Apple Configuration or 3rd Party Configuration?
« on: August 08, 2017, 07:57:04 PM »
It seems I have stumbled upon an oddity that I bought off Craigslist. It's a Blue & White G3, it's specs being almost the same as the original 300Mhz configuration. However, the differences is where things get interesting. It seems to be a Rev B system, with the updated board and even a ATI Rage 128 with the option of the DVD encoder (however, it lacks the encoder as it only has a CD-R drive only). So this leaves confused. All documentation points to the 300Mhz model never getting a Rev B motherboard update. So can someone please tell me what I have?  Thanks in advance!

tell google your serialnumber that should tell it us.

similar problem with the two different IDE controllers of dual 1.0 quicksilvers...

 ??? The Serial Number on the back of computer is "SG916CFAG9D". Checking Every Mac and Google brought up no answers. So could I have a rarity? The first documented revision of it's kind? And here I thought I was just getting a regular Rev B, with the seller getting the specs wrong on listing!

Maybe the motherboard's been swapped? Here are serial number search results from 2 different sites... both note manufacture in Singapore.

I have the opposite config.

A rev. 1 with a G3 450. Rev. 1 only had 300/350/400 models IIRC. Originally came with a G3 350.

I have a G4 400 ZIF module waiting for this machine. http://macos9lives.com/smforum/index.php/topic,1213.0.html
