When we first heard about the new G4s and especially once the MX in the GeforceMX sank in many of us began to get angry with the limitations on the BTO options on the apple store. I'm not really interested in buying a new computer for another year or so but I was interested in the BTO options as well. I took a trip to my college apple store and started asking some questions. I can buy just about any configuration I would want. Ok so I can't buy a G4 without the processor, but I can get my choice of optical drive (as long as apple is still manufacturing what I want, ie no floppy or CD-Rom). So I started thinking and I figured if i was going to buy right now i would get my g4 (933 or dual 1) with no RAM (we all know we can get it cheaper) no hard drive (again cheaper bigger drives available elsewehere) and no video card (buy a radeon 8500, geforce3, or wait for the geforce4 or radeon 9500) i would keep the super drive (i could really use dvd for backup). just think how cheap such a machine would be... makes you think (o sure you would probably have to wait an extra month because of its BTO but hey i think it would be worth it).
