G4 Cube needs a home.

I think this is resoved, at least for now, any changes and I'll repost.
-----------------
A year or 2 ago I got interested in Power PC's and started my journey into the past by purchasing a G4 Cube.
This little icon of Apple history so intrigued me I somehow ended up with 3 of them.
Long story-short, my interest in all things PPC has led me to a G5 2.5 quad and the 3 cubes are all sitting idle on a shelf and I'm beginning to feel guilty about it.
I have available a stock 450mhz cube in working order I'll give free to anyone willing to pay the shipping.
PM me for more details.

That's an awesome offer.

I sent you a PM to enquire further.

Thanks in advance regardless if I take it off your hands.

I don't mean this to be flippant, but why would anyone want a cube? is it just aesthetics? How much slower would a 450mhz cube be than a 700mhz DA?

got to admit, mainly the aesthetics... but it would be cool to do something with it

Cubes can be nicely upgraded just like DAs. And a good bonus is they have a rather strong following.

Sounds neat. For me personally I care more about processing power than aesthetics. Its a great deal though for those who like aesthetics.

You can put a dual 1.8Ghz 7448 G4 upgrade in both the Cube and the Digital Audio.

Processing power is probably why the OP is giving them away, I'm kind of the same way, I've had the opportunity to snag many a G5 but my MBP runs OS X perfectly meanwhile my G4 is an OS 9 beast and rarely boots into 10.4.

The G5s must meet the OP's processing needs so keeping the Cubes around isn't necessary and besides it's nice to give them to someone that wants them.
