This looks like a question for @SirConnery

I love MacOS personally, but I'm not sure what the use would be for such an old one.

There are a lot of old Mac games that won't run on Intel systems, even with Rosetta installed. I would grab one to do MobyGames stuff, but that's just me.

No. Not a buy since it's PowerPC. Software compatibility is too difficult. You want at least a Intel Core 2 Duo.

If you wanted to try a Mac, I'd aim for these two desktops, and then anything newer:

Mid 2011 MacMini (easy to spot as this is the first model to lack an optical drive)
https://everymac.com/systems/apple/mac_mini/specs/...

iMac Core 2 Duo AL (first model to introduce aluminum builds. Doesn't run current OS, but can be found cheap. First Aluminum model to still run current OS is late 2009)
https://everymac.com/systems/apple/imac/specs/imac...

The MacMini would be better since it's extremely easy to upgrade and has a HDMI port. Just connect it to your TV.

yes I wasn't really aiming for a Mac at all. I just remember people talking about it here, and it seemed to be in nice shape at a fair price. So I thought I'd ask smile

People still buy the boxy originals and make fish tanks out of them.

Old tube iMacs have really high values when complete in box almost untouched or never opened.
