    It is sad to think it, but my PowerBook G4 500MHz is now an "old" computer. It is running 10.3.6.

    Personally I've only ever had two OS X-compatible Macs, one of them's been sold (800 MHz iBook G3), plus my current one is a 1.25 GHz G4 tower. A friend has a 400 MHz Sawtooth, but unfortunately OS X crashes on boot :(

    The store which i work at runs off old iMacs. We have a bondi blue iMac running 10.3.6 as our POS machine, and we have a secretary machine which is a pink iMac. It is also running 10.3.6. We are running off old computers.
    At home I run a 700mhz G3 iMac with 10.3.6 on it.

    I've got an iBook SE (366 MHz) running Panther. I'm currently lending it to my neighbor, for whom it's her primary home computer. She's constantly opening it up to check the IMDB when we can't place an actor, and uses it regularly for the other internet basics over AirPort. And I just managed to cadge a free CD burner from my brother-in-law, so we moved her iTunes library off my computer to the iBook. She's borrowing my iPod mini, too--I'm laying the seeds of Macdom now, against the day when she can afford one, 'cause I'm sneaky and evil like that. :D

    My 3 years old iBook, with screen not working since i dropped it on the floor, saved to friends this week, when both their computers (also macs) broke down just before a deadline for an architectural competition. I am so proud of it :D

    Think I'm gonna set it up as a server when I get some broader band soon...if I can figure out how...

    Just to clarify: You do mean POS as "point of sale" right? As opposed to the other popular term...

    As for me, I have an upgraded Pismo (G4 500) running 10.2.8 and a PM 733 running the same. I meant to upgrade to Panther, but after so long, I think I will just wait for Tiger and upgrade machines and perhaps find a cheap copy of Panther for my current babies (if I don't sell).

    I have an old tricked-out Power Computing PowerTowerPro running Panther - I use it as a media server. Maxed out the RAM to 2 GB - beefed up the hard drives, CPU and graphics card. Not a bad old machine - not bad for an 8 year old clone.

    My other OS X computer is my PB 17" 1.33 GHz - love it.
