so i went nuts and bought a bunch of macs. they were only $10 each and so i blew some of my tax return on them. so i open them up and unsurprisingly most of the ram is gone but lucky me that they all have hdd's and all the necessary bits. also all except for one (which i've confirmed is related to the hdd in some way) has the iconic apple startup noise which is hopefully a good sign. after swapping the hd with one from the others it has the sound too. i lack a monitor peripherals to test them so i was wondering a few things. first off can i use a regular usb wireless mouse and keyboard or do i need to get a mac specific one with only one button. from what i've read 3 of these are 450mhtz sawtooth models and one is a 533 digital audio model but i was wondering what the difference in capabilities between the two of them other then processor speed. is it really worth it to order in a few dual processors for these guys or would there be any benefit for what they could potentially be used for? can they really be used for anything? can i use creative sound blaster cards on them? for that matter can i use any standard pci card in what looks to be pci-x slots? well i got allot of questions so i'll leave you guys with this for now. looking forward to playing with my new toys and i might be getting an old iMac g3 to add to the clutter. even if these are useless the $10 each pricetag is worth it for those sexy cases. might make some nice furniture if all else fails. got to love colllege basement sales!
