Vintage Mac Repairs

Are you one of those old school Mac veterans that still own what apple call “a vintage Mac”. If you are and you are facing technical difficulties, Apple as well as many official and independent Mac repair companies no longer support or repair them. The main problem in most cases in Apple no longer make the parts for these vintage machines, in many cases they probably have made them for many years.

Here at Apple rescue we are still able to source vintage parts for Apple computers like the Powerbook G4, iBook G4, Power Mac G5, and the Power Mac G3. We still also cover the much loved iMac G4 and iMac G5. Amazingly some of the early intel based Macbooks and iMacs are now considered vintage as well.

The iBook G3 was first introduced back in 1999 (model number M2453) and ran till July 26th 2005. Models included A1055, A1134, A1054, A1054, A1133, A1007, and the A1005. Interim CEO turned his eye to the redesign of the PowerBook series in 2000. The result was in 2001 the Powerbook G4.  Still over 10 years later the Powerbook G4 is a beautiful laptop. The Powerbook G4 12″  is still a very much sort after item for Mac collectors. We are please to let you know we still cover the models below for repair.

The Powerbook G4 ran from 2001 to 2005 when the Macbook Pro with intel was first introduced. In 1999 Apple introduced the Power Mac G3 (blue and white).  It was discontinued in August 2009 in favour of the Power Mac G4. The Power Mac G4 ran from 1999 to 2004, it used the Power PC G4 chip. Apple also made a model called the Power Mac G4 cube around the similar time. The Power Mac G5 was presented by Steve Jobs at Keynotes back in June 2003. It was the first first 64-bit PC, and at the time it was the fastest Mac ever built by Apple. It featured a an anodized aluminium chassis and ran production till 2006, then was replaced by the Mac Pro. The processor specs for the run until 2005 are featured below.
SP 1.6, 1.8, DP 1.8, or DP 2.0 GHz PowerPC 970 (G5) DP 1.8, DP 2.0, or DP 2.5 GHz PowerPC 970FX (G5) SP 1.8 GHz PowerPC 970FX (G5) DP 2.0, DP 2.3, or DP 2.7 GHz PowerPC 970FX (G5) DC 2.0, DC 2.3, or DP DC “Quadcore” 2.5 GHz PowerPC 970MP (G5)
Some of the most popular vintage Mac’s we still see regally is the iMac G4 Sunflower and the iMac G5. Amazingly The iMac G4 has become somewhat of a design icon with many wishing to refurbish to keep in a study at home as a talking centre peace. To think that the iMac G4 in some cases is over 10 years old (first being introduced back in 2002). This model ran till 2004. The processor specs are detailed below.
700 MHz or 800 MHz PowerPC G4 (7450) 800 MHz PowerPC G4 (7450) 1.0 GHz PowerPC G4 (7445) 1.0 GHz (15″), 1.25 GHz (17 & 20″) PowerPC G4 (7445)
In 2004 Apple did an overhaul on its iMac and the G5 was born. It was also the last of the  iMacs that could natively run Mac OS 9 (Classic).  The last model was released in 2006 with a built in isight camera. It was around this time Apple was in the middle of moving over to intel  based Macs.
Here at applerescue we still repair the classic Macintosh computers and laptops, so if you are looking to stick with old faitful that bit longer we may be able to help you. We can still track down parts for vintage iBook, Powerbook, and Power Mac machines. In some cases we can still even help with old eMac models.  Get in today for details.
