Hi Mark,

Possibly any older iMac (they will all run OS X 10.3) albeit slowly ...
They all have built in Ethernet and will run all the apps you mentioned.

You would only want to use this for testing . Not working on day to day
unless you upgrade the RAM in it ...

(we have a 233 mhz original blue and white iMac setup with 10.3 as a testing
apache server and it works very well)
