    I just purchased a used powermac "sawtooth" off of ebay($180). I plan on upgrading it with a 1.4 giga designs cpu card and adding a large HD and a super drive and 1GB of ram. I am really syched up about being a new member of the mac comunity. Oh and I would have gotten a mac mini, but I am more the type that wants to turn this into an upgrade project, I find that fun.

    I am sorry if this is spam, but I just can't wait to recieve my mac in the mail.

    Welcome to the cult! :) I love it that you're just making the switch and you're already saying things like Sawtooth. I still am not entirely sure on the difference between a Pismo and a Wallstreet! :p

    It should work, the seller had pictures of it running 10.3 and claimed it was in perfect working order. There was also a DOA gaurantee.

    Go to www.apple-history.com for a lesson! :p
    They are actually pretty different machines amazingly!

    Sounds like you got a good deal there my friend!

    I was actually being somewhat facetious. :p Apple-History does rock, though, btw. Kudos to whoever runs it. :)
