A beige G3 powermac would be your best bet anyway for what you want.

I think the Wall Street G3 Powerbooks were the last to use ADB ports, I cannot find any indication that the Lombard G3 or Pismo G3 models had ADB.
Is there any chance you you'd be able to trace one back? I'd be willing to buy if the price is right. I bought 2 G3s and a Mainstreet from Fuji already, and after hosing down the whole lot (I actually washed the motherboards etc of leaves, fried rice, and nicotine build up lol), I was only able to get 1 G3 to power up... but it won't install anything (its really slow for some reason (maybe Norton) and I lose control of the USB card when I attempt to install a new OS on a brand new hard drive (I'm no expert at this, but maybe the ADB mouse and keyboard is a requirement for installations bec booting from cd does not load up the usb drivers???)

Yeah you are right the Pismo has no adb ports, thankfully, but it also does not have the Din-8 port which I need.

And that's too bad about the AIOs as well. I'm a fan of those models. I need a beige for my lab, but the AIO would be my passion. lol. It's what my iMac SE 700 should have been. If I had one, I'd swap the CRT out for and LCD and reconnect it into the motherboard port. with the extra space in the back I'd put an intel mac mini in :3.
