    heu guys i am new here and and plan on buying a powermac g4 400mhz gigabit model off ebay but i have a question regarding the internal zip drive.

    is it a 100mb or 250mb drive?
    can it both read and write to both types?
    is it worth investing in zip disk's

    #3: the correct is: OH ! H E L L ! N O !

    zip disks are really, really, really expensive compared to cd's or dvd's, on a space per dollar basis, and is basically a DEAD technology anyways) You'd do better investing in a CD ($8-20) or DVD burner ($25-45) and get a much better return on your money :D

    ps, you can mount a 3.5" HDD in the space where the zip drive fits and use it for a backup drive :p
