    I am somewhat of a mac enthusiast. I have started a collection of mac computers and it is coming along very well. One of the computers that i have not been able to find is a powermac G2. I have the Powermac G3,4, and five but cannot find a G2! Please tell me if you know where to find one. Thanks.

    I don't think there was any such thing as the "G2" - the G3 was the PPC 750 but prior to that was the PPC 603, which wasn't called "G2" (according to www.apple-history.com)

    Have a look here. They weren't really called G1 or G2, that marketing label began with the G3.

    There was no G2, the G-series started when the third generation of PowerPC chips were introduced. If memory serves me right, I think the progression of PowerPC chips went something like 601, 603, 604 and G3. Just curious, what have you collected so for. I have a small collection of Macs see sig. I did have a G3 AIO but the power supply blew and parted it out. I'm looking to get a Mac SE and a earlier PowerPC 7100 soon, just have to make the 60 mile trip to pick them up.

    Any Mac enthusiast would know that there was no G1 or G2.

    I have a Power Mac G2 that I will sell to you steves bst frnd. The price is $800 as these machines are collector items. Once you send the money to my PayPal account I will ship it out to you. ;) :D :)
