    We have one of the old G3's (pre-blue and white). It works. We have the 96
well upgrade. I haven't been using it heavily since we got the 3700 up and
running, but other than problems requiring a low-level reformat of the hard
drive, it has been stable. Another lab in this building has a 377-96 with a
blue and white G3. Both of us bought our machines with the 96-upgrade. I am
running version 2.5 of Data Collection, v. 3.3 of sequencing analysis and v.
3.1 of genescan.
