Well, my trusty MDD died on me a few weeks ago and I can take Windows XP no longer.

So, I'm looking into maybe snagging a Power Mac G4.

I'd rather not spend a lot of money on one since I'd like to purchase an aftermarket processor upgrade card. But ideally I'd like a Digital Audio or Quicksilver machine, single or dual processor. Good cosmetic shape is also a plus.

So, if you've got what I'm looking for, let me know the specs and how much you're asking.

Thanks guys.

MDD single 1.25
256
A Factory combo and a 4x SL superdrive
80gb and 120 gb drives, both internal.
Running 10.4.10
Cosmetically newrly flawless

iLife 06


I haven't settled on a price yet, but let me know if you're interested.

I've got an original PMG4 400MHz that I'll sell for CHEAP. And if you're in SoCAL, I'll give you the matching display!

*Bump*

Still haven't located anything in the price range I'm comfortable with.

Basically, I'm looking for something with a 133MHz bus speed, which means 466, 533 (x2), 667, 733, 800, 933... etc. RAM and hard drive are of little importance to me since I'll be adding my own.

Personally I find it hilarious that you have the hots for my gramma. Especially seeins how she is 3x your age, and makes your Brittney-Spears-wannabe 30-something wife look like a rag doll who went thru WWIII with a burning stick of dynamite up her a** :)

My better half wants me to replace this with a 17" 2.44. MBP.















Any interest?
