    So I was at a surplus auction.. I bought a G4 cube 450mhz no ram no hard drive for 20 bones.. Got it all back together and up and running.. I got a Studio Display LCD for 100 bucks for it as well.. All in all it turned out to be a G4 Cube 450mhz 120GBHD/768MB RAM. So who all owns one.. post pics if you got them..

    I haven't heard any offers yet. If it buys me a week in Fiji I might just have to consider it.

    I voted "secondary machine," but actually it's the fifth machine in our household, behind my iMac, my wife's PowerBook, my daughter's mini, and my iBook. But it's my son's primary computer!

    So far I'm the only one to admit to using a Cube as my primary desktop Mac. This is probably its last year in that role, but it has served me very well, especially since the upgrades.

    Mine runs my scanner and A2 printer, as the Epson PPC drivers are much better, so I'd say it shares primary duties with my 24" iMac.

    Mine has a new hard drive, but everything else is original.

    Never had one, but it'd be fun to have one. The discontinued mac I want the most, though, is an iMac G4.

    I just bought a 450MHz Cube off of eBay the other day, either going to fix it up and sell it or keep it (which is tempting to do). :) :apple:

    You do know that that is illegal right?
    I want a cube, but I'm not sure what I would do with one.

    My Cube isn't hooked up right now, but I occasionally use it to watch movies. I put a 2.5" Travelstar hard drive in there a while back, and you can not hear any noise coming from the Cube at all unless you have your ear right up against it. I'd love to use it as a media center, but discs get stuck in the vertical slot-loading DVD drive, and I've been too busy (and lazy) to fix it.
