    Refurb Dual 2ghz G5 PM's w/8gb - PCI-X board on the apple refurb store. They are't going to last long. Quite frankly I'm surprised they are back at all. I ordered one of these babies a month ago and love it. The day I got mine they disappeared off the site and are just back now.

    lol, your welcome. It's a great machine. Really upgradeable. I mean, seriously, even 5 years from now, I think if I put in a 512mb vid card, 8gb of ram and two 400gb (or larger dependent on tech then) harddrives, something tells me it would at least keep up ok. I mean, look at the B&W G3 towers, those are still pretty capable and I don't feel that they are at all as upgradeable comparing them to other computers of their era, and comparing this to computers of it's era (memory wise.) Of course, you can't upgrade the processor on these boxes though.

    **edit**
    Actually it'd be like comparing to the G4 tower lol, even better.
