View Full Version : WTB: PowerMac G4

Jan 4, 2006, 07:52 PM
I'm looking for a PowerMac.

I'm open to anything up to the highest end of the Quicksilvers, but I have neither the money or the interest in any MDDs or G5s.

Cubes would also be welcome.

I have a G4 Sawtooth for sale. Here are the specs:

1.2 GHz OWC Processor upgrade
Pioneer DVD-RW/CD-RW
Radeon 9000 Video card
80 Gig Main HD
120 Gig Spare HD
1.25 Gig RAM
Linksys wireless card
Currently running Tiger
I also have an external Zip drive for it.

Let me know if you are interested...

don't think i have nearly the cash for that, that's why i didn't want an MDD or something similar...

i won't even disgrace you with an offer but i'll tell you i just had to turn someone down on a machine around 600 dollars, so i could hardly afford yours :P

thanks for the interest though.

just to clarify a little: i'd much prefer to purchase a machine under 500 dollars, anything more than that is a real stretch on my current finances and most likely will not happen.

So...why not a Mac Mini? I mean, I just want to know why a Power Mac G4.

Mine is probably in your price range then. The thread is above. Great machine. It MAY be going to a local print shop though. But it's up in the air.
