    Hey guys. I own a PowerMac G5 but for my anniversary my girlfriend got me a G4 Cube because she knew how much I loved 'em.

    I just found out that you need USB speakers.. lame! But I have a few quick questions..

    1. (Even though I don't have speakers) When I put an audio cd in the CUBE.. it recognizes it, but when I hit the play button on iTunes, the swirling beach-ball will just sit there. What's up with that?

    2. Can I upgrade the processor and boost the memory up to 1GB?


    G4 Cube
    450 MHz
    512MB Memory
    100 HDD

    Thanks guys!

    USB Speakers Are Part Of What Comes With Cubes

    It comes with a set of USB Speakers. How is it you got one without them?

    Max ram is 3 x 512MB sticks for a total of 1.5GB

    Yes there is a dual 1.44GHz upgrade available but you need to add a fan in the bottom - Apple left a place for one in the design.

    its probably because you need to have an audio driver to send the output too. Buy an iMic for $30 bucks and you can use any speakers with a regular headphone jack.

    Is there an easy way to find the upgrade and fan?

    Google Is Your Friend

    Google "Apple G4 Cube Processor Upgrades". Also the CubeOwner.com Forums will tell you all about it.
