Apple Imac G3 - FREE (swap for floppy drive actually) - YOU COLLECT!

I have an Apple G3 iMac in Blue - (I will post a picture later) - it has 256MB Ram, 20 GB HD, CD Rom (slot), OS 10&9 CD's, Keyboard, Mouse, - it is in very good condition but I have no space for it and I cant throw it out as it is a really nice thing!!!

I want to swap it for an Amiga external floppy disk drive (in as good condition as the iMac on offer) no yellow floppy drives please - I would like to see a picture of what floppy drive you are offering...

The deal is - you come and pick up the iMac and take it away in exchange for the floppy drive...

I am in Bromley in Kent (junction 5 off M25) - I think - I will check...

Any takers ?? - 1st offer with a decent enough floppy drive to exchange gets it...

I will *not* post this so please don't ask - it weighs a ton.

It is a good deal - I need the space - mind you I want a decent Floppy drive!

The best Floppy Drive will swing it to be honest and how quickly you can collect...

The picture of it will be up in a bit...

Here's are some pictures of the iMac....





The keyboard and mouse are a bit worn/dusty but the G3 itself is in great condition...fully functioning - any questions just PM me...

I really do just need the space so someone is going to get a good deal here but I do want a decent Amiga External Floppy Disk Drive in exchange and you must be able to pick up!

I'm interested, I have a cumana external floppy drive, if thats what you're after.

We do travel down from Norfolk to Sussex quite regularly and could easily pop in to pick it up.

Give me a PM if you're interested.

That's the same as my Cumana 3.5" External Floppy Drive. It's the most reliable Amiga floppy drive I have - even better than my two A1200 internal floppy drives. A damned fine drive.

Hi Peter,

If you ever find you need any further information on the Cumana 3½-inch external floppy drive after you have acquired it, have a look at my posts on the External Disk Drive thread:
