    Hey all,
    I am looking to purchase an older machine to use as a dedicated MP3 box for my room. I was wondering what you all thought would make a good, cheap machine. So far, I am looking at an 8600 or an 8500, both with the AV card. However, if you have any other ideas, plase let me know. I am, however, nbot looking to spend too much, and want a tower. Plus, I want a beige machine, because I don't want to call much attention to it.

    P.S. - All my MP3's are legit. (For those who care)

    What will you be doing with this “box”?
    Will it be for downloading or just to play music?

    Well

    I could sell you something for cheap. A Powermac 7200/66? 7300/90? Performa 6116CD?

    Just to play, I have CD's to rip. Those PMs are a tad slow for what I'm looking to do, sorry Aztec. However, if I'm looking for an old hobby machine, I'll give you a "call" first.

    Why not just rip ‘em to your current Mac???
    I would also be cheaper and better to get an iPod!!! ;) ;) :D

    If your just looking for a place to store your MP3's, I'd suggest just getting an additional hard drive. Dedicate that just to MP3's.
