i was looking to by i mac to my dad to start using the web , when i saw a guy selling a g4 powerpc brand new in the box for 250 euros .

i phone the guy and the story of the g4 is that the mac was forget in a box that everyone think that was empty, in a apple retailer.

and there is was the g4 sealed , never used , my first tought was dont use it , and in a few years could be worth a lot.

but i turn it on and works perfectly , made all the updates , and is incredible fast.

i order some memory on ebay and im going to update with 2gb

heres the configuration

tiger 10.4
1,42 ghz
256mb ram expandable to 2 gb
