    hey! i have a friend from school who has a 1 - year - old powermac G5 dual processor, but i don't know the actual speed, he says its currently broken, but i'm sure it can be fixed easily. he was thinking of giving it to me for free, but now he wants a trade, or some money for it. i think i could pull off givin him $500 canadian for it, but i don't have ANY money right now, this is a dream come true if i can get this from him....but the only thing is that i'd still need a monitor....oh well

    Well, it can only be 1.8ghz or 2.0ghz if it is a year old. That is some deal.

    Check the model number on the back, and look it up. Be careful buying a computer that doesn't work...

    The slowest dual processor PowerMac G5 ever made was dual 1.8 GHz...
