I am almost ready to get rid of this setup. An FYI, Duals run so much faster than a single at the same speed it isn't even funny. I am now a believer in the Duals. This runs Tiger perfectly, and I can even get this setup to run Halo at 1600x1200. Halo is my test bed for many systems since people like to complain it doesn't run right, since it is so bloated and poorly programmed on the mac. Please do not discuss price on this forum. if you think you might be interested e-mail me.

Here are the specs:

Dual G4 450
2GB RAM
200GB HD Storage. 120GB Hard Drive. 7200 RPM and 8MB Cache Also has an 80GB Hard Drive. 7200 RPM.
NEC Superdrive. 16X Dual Layer DVD-RW/R, +RW/R, CD-RW, CD-R Drive
ATI Radeon 9800 Pro Mac Edition 128MB DDR RAM
2 Firewire 400 Ports
4 USB Ports (2 of 4 on Apple Keyboard)
Gigabit Ethernet Port 10/100/1000
Apple White Pro Keyboard
Apple Black Pro Optical Mouse

Thanks all and let me know.

Thanks. it's been a great Machine and it is eons faster than my old single 450, and at the same time the Video card supports all Tiger features as well. Really a great setup so far, and I am sure for years to come. BTW most upgrades are less than 30 days old. Video Card is less than 60.

I would consider trading for a Powerbook, or would consider a cash offer. Please make a fair offer via PM or email if your interested. :)

As I said I am not shipping to Spain. Also go look at what the 9800 alone goes for on Ebay. Not trying to get rich but the parts alone are worth more.

i understand, not trying to crap all over the thread- have you tried listing it on craigslist or ebay? set a reserve and see what it sells for?

Understood. Just a bit testy this AM, sorry, lol. :) I'm fine with keeping it if that is the case. I just thought I would throw it up and see if someone really wanted one or had a Powerbook they just didn't need anymore. I'm running it on a nice 1600x1200 Viewsonic graphic monitor, and to goto an iBook or 12" Powerbook again just wouldn't cut it. :) This is easily faster in Tiger than my "Old" 1GHZ Alubook with 1GB RAM and a 5400RPM HD with 16MB Cache.

Sorry but I will not ship to Spain. Too many customs and what not to deal with and too much potential for something to go wrong. Good luck on your search though.
