    Why did that "friend's friend" wanted to sell it? Especially for 800$???

    He bought it 2 years ago when they first came out, and decided Macs weren't for him. It's been sitting unused for 1.5+ years (and it shows, there wasn't even dust in the case).

    Now he's moving, and rather tan lug around a computer he doesnt use, he wanted some cash. He actually was asking $1000, but since time was of the essence, he accepted an $800 offer :)

    Lucky you! I wish somebody offered the same deal to me... :D

    Ha! its cheaper than eMac :eek:

    :) I'm really enjoying it. I bought an Airport card for it, and I'm going to get a little more RAM in there. It's going to fly :)

    Great situation for me, as I can admit (although painfully) that I don't need a Dual G5 for what I do, as I suspect many here don't. That being said I would buy one if money wasn't an issue. But with the cheapest Dual G5 1200 dollars more, this will suit me just fine.

    Sometimes I ask myself: "why to i NEED iMac G5"? Yes i definetely WANT it to play games, and to do the same stuff that I do today + maybe Motion and Cinema 4D :D

    But i dont NEED it. Arghhh :mad:
