I'm not sure if this is the right forum but, any Ableton Live 5 users with a G3?

I'm thinking about buying a used iMac G3 (350mhz) to use as a dedicated Live machine, but I'm not sure how well it'll run.

Any ideas?

It probably depends on how hard you want to push it. I ran the Demo of Live 4 on my G3 600 iBook no problems, though I'm not sure I would have wanted to do anything intensive with it. The specs say any G3 or faster, so technically, it's doable, though you'd have to put 512Mb of RAM in it.

Coincidentally, I was given an iMac G3 350 just today, but the darn thing won't start up for some reason, otherwise I could have downloaded the Live Demo and let you know.
