    Yo. I just picked up a used G4 dual 450. Overall, it's in great shape and I'm very happy with the performance in Panther with 512MB ram :)
    Anyhoo, can anyone tell me the function of the 2 buttons under the power button? The button on the left is an outie and the one on the right is an innie. The right button may be broken but I can't find any good close up pics to verify. Plz help g4 owners...pics??

    I have the same 2 buttons on my blue and white G3. the left one is for emergency boot (if your system freezes). the right one is a programmers button. only time I have ever needed to use the right one was having to hold it in when I upgraded to the G4 cpu on its first boot.

    hope this cleared up everything for you.
