    Why were some Powermac G4's names have Quicksilver in them? Is it a special line or what? Whats the diffrence between the G4 "Quicksilver" and the regular g4?

    refers to case design and specs.

    It's just a way to differentiate different models from one another – it doesn't indicate that it's a special edition or anything like that.

    So, for example, when you mentioned Quicksilver I immediately knew which style of Power Mac you were talking about... ;)

    Seriously, this thing has more problems than anything. Icons randomly disappear on desktop, have to click around to get them back. Safari bugs out a lot now. Did I mention it's slow and still using MHz? lol Looking forward to a new MacPro with Leopard.

    Sounds like a personal problem to me. ;)

    My dual 1ghz QS is 5.5 and will be my "daily driver" for the foreseeable future (I recently purchased a Mac Pro to relive the QS of it's editing duties).

    My Quick Silver as headless server works fine. If you are in the Virginia area, I'll pick yours up. Probably just sofware problem.

    I would love getting a Quicksilver for its looks. :cool:

    I have a Digital Audio 466 MHz and a FW 800 Dual 1.25 GHz, so those designs are covered.... but no Quicksilver yet ;)

    My 733MHz Quicksilver is still going as well as it did when it was new, 6 years ago.
    It needs a new graphics card, 32MB is a bit crap now-a-days...
