I've seen a few G4 minis for the $300 range on Craigslist.

With the refurb deals on the Apple site starting at just under $500 it would be hard to pay more then that for a G4 version.

Keep in mind that the 400 MHz G4 will not support Leopard, only Tiger (10.4) or earlier.

I ran a dual 450 with 1GB of RAM for a second computer for a short time and it was fairly sluggish.

I upgraded the memory in my Mini with PNY RAM from CompUSA. They had the 1GB for something like $89 each after $25 rebate. I see deals like that from them at least once a month.

The Dell monitor for the price is a great addition to the Mini.

However regardless of the brand, make sure you use DVI. An LCD without DVI is not worth the investment.

50,000 hours = 5 years ????

Good grief at 40 hours a week for 52 weeks you are only at 2080 hours.

Or 24 x 7 x 52 is 8736. So even with 24x7 usage 50,000 hours is over 5 and 1/2 years.

I'm glad to see Apple take advantage of the interior space on the existing enclosure. Four internal hard drives will be great for the pro level users.

Agreed the new Mac Pro is a good value when compared to the G5 PM.

However it isn't fun putting the credit card back away and waiting for another day (Paris Expo?).

That is going to be a rocking high end pro machine.

But $2499 - that leaves a huge hole for a new mid-range system.

Any bets on if that is announced today or later?
