Price or Interest check: Vintage G3 candy iMacs

I have five G3 iMacs all working order but will probably need clean OS9 installs since I made them kids machines and pulled much of the system software needed for internet/networking off.

Is there any interest in these? What should they be priced at?

It's great to hear that those G3 iMacs are all still "working" as configured it seems, and the only interest may be: some collector; or someone with some kids, or those with visiting young grandkids; or maybe some retirement home places - but they have virtually no monetary value and are basically "give away" iMacs at best I'd suggest.

And Mac OS 9 updates etc. are still available to get back anything missing and even the first G3 iMac can run a Maximum MacOS: X 10.3.9. The later models up to 10.4.x. - Sort of.

Where best to liquidate? I just think they're too precious for the landfill.

Maybe check with any local Mac User Group or Mac stores in your area.

Some as in our area can make use of some old Macs or even regenerate them and give them to some needy people (single mums etc.) and some retirement centers can make use of them.

Finally the local Salvation Army does a lot of good recycling work and would properly gladly take them off your hands.

A lot of recycling places around our area have started to charge a recycling fee and heaven knows what they do with them.

And don't forget any young grand kids, but even they seem to only want the latest and greatest these days.
