What to do with G4 Mac Mini

I never use it anymore. I think it has 10.3.9 on it.

Any cool projects I can do with it? Apple says it will give me 96 bucks for it on a trade....tempting considering I might go for a 27 inch imac...every dollar matters.

I was tempted to upgrade it to 10.5 and just use it for browsing the sites...but then my macbook pro might get jealous.

Put it on eBay. They G4 Mini's still sell fairly well. Much more then what Apple is offering.

Yeah, judging by the specifications of the Mac Mini, you could get way more. I see some selling for as much as 300 for a PPC Mac Mini on eBay.
