iMac G3 266 Hz Revision C 1999

The iMac G3 Revision C differs from the Revision B in processor speed (boosted up to 266 Hz) and in hardware options. It had lost the mezzanine slot and the IrDA port. So on a bright side, the price was reduced. The design remained the same but five more “fruit” colors were added: Blueberry, Strawberry, Grape, Lime, Tangerine.
