    G4 500mhz 128mb RAM, 20gig Hard Drive ,DVDROM Drive, ZIP... this is the description I got from a site by this I'm guessing its a cube, am I right? Also the harddrive is pretty small can I add an external firewire hdd if so, which one would be best? Finally if it is indeed a cube, it has 2 USB ports and my question is if so are they usb 1.1 or 2.0? and if 1.1 can i still use 2.0 products like flash memory drives, and printers? also I know 2 usb and 2 fiwewire ports are not a lot when i want to add an external hdd and printer, keyboard and mouse etc. can I possibly use a usb hub at all? and if so which one would be best.

    sorry for my ignorance I'm a total noob:eek:

    Also what kind of ram would it take? sorry noob :eek:

    I don't think it's a cube b/c on the zip drive. As for the usb question yes you can use a usb hub. If its that old of a machine it will have usb 1.1 but you still can use 2.0.
