So I rescued this from the IT dumpster at work today.

It feels like it has a battery, but no juice (obviously), so I'll try and find a power supply to hook it up to.

But holy crap it's heavy. I just carried it up the stairs and I need to sit down.

Nice. I have one that looks very similar, but the label has no specs, just says "PowerBook G3 Series". So I'm guessing yours is a later edition.
I don't feel like firing it up to get the specs, since it is so very slow.

Yeah I'm not sure what gen this is...Wallstreet Series II, perhaps.

This is actually not related to this at all - but the "it belongs in a museum" text reminded me of something about the Tarantino movie The Hateful Eight

Similar thing happened in Battlestar Galactica. Edward James Olmos smashed a wooden model of a ship his character had been building as a hobby. It wasn't in the script but he went with his gut during the take and it was a great moment. But he didn't know the thing was on loan from a museum, worth over $100,000.

Back on topic... I (or rather, my dad) had one of these, but it was the beefier 300mhz model (https://everymac.com...ook_g3_300.html ) with a DVD drive. It was the first DVD drive my family owned... I vividly remember watching Jaws on it and being terrified. I also remember playing the DVD version of Riven on it, at a time when DVD games were super uncommon. Not having to swap disks was great.
