    I've been thinking about buying a sawtooth recently. I was wondering if this is a good deal for $149. It seems pretty decent to me. I just hate how this 6-7 year old mac is still worth so much :p .

    Stats:

    Power Mac G4
    400MHz
    256MB (2x 128MB)
    30GB HDD
    DVD-ROM
    10/100 Ethernet
    2x Firewire
    2x USB

    Tell me what you think. Thanks.

    That's pretty good, thought the 2 128s are kind of useless. But yeah, you can get a Sonnett 1gHz for $175 retail ($120ish on ebay) and get a couple sticks of 512 pc133 dor around $100 or so, and you'll have a damn fast machine that can compete with a Mac Mini for about the same cost (plus being able to upgrade further)...

    Or just run it as is with 9.2 or 10.2 and you'll have a workhorse for another five years or so.
