    I just bought this desk for my house down at college:

    My G5 is at home with me right now, 100 miles away from said desk, so I can't do a test fit. But as you see from the pic, they show a Sawtooth G4, and it's a pretty tight fit. How much taller are the G5s than the G4? I'm kinda worried it won't fit.

    Thanks.

    I don't know the measurements but the G5 is huge, perhaps 3-4 inches taller than the G4. Almost kept me from buying one but I had no other (new) choice except for a mini.

    G4 - 17" H x 8.9" W x 18.4" D
    G5 - 20.1" H x 8.1" W x 18.7" D

    PowerMac G4:

    43.2cm x 22.6cm x 46.7cm

    PowerMac G5:

    51.1cm x 20.6cm x 47.5cm.

    Or in terms you might understand:

    G4 = 17.0" x 8.9" x 18.4"
    G5 = 20.1" x 8.1" x 18.7"

    So it's about 3 inches taller, slightly thinner but a little deeper.

    Notice also that in the desk pic they have hung the handle over the front edge of the shelf, not the recommended procedure. With both machines, they want a shelf the full depth of the machine.

    Or augment the shelf with a strategically deployed piece of plywood, if you have the height to spare for the thickness of the plywood plus the handle rise...
