I think it's around $150 at my campus because even tho edu on apple is like, $239 for my PB, I got it at school for $199. But is it worth it for desktop? I'm strapped for cash, and I just was cruious, whats the life expectancy or past history on the G5 towers? Still waiting on the Dual 1.8 I ordered. Oh yea, and was the old Dual 1.8 G5's 64 bit? everyone says try to get one cause of the PCI-X and 8 ram slots. Just curious, even tho I'm sticking with my current order.
