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.

Back when we still used Macs where I work, they lost a couple of Bondi Blue iMacs in our warehouse for two years. Since we were on a 3-year rotation, once they were found they were only put into service for one year before being shipped off to the technology recycler.
