Can you build your own computer running mac os and a ppc? I was wondering this because with any wintel box you can buy the parts you want and put them in to a box for less money. I was wondering if you could do this with a ppc and mac os.

I'm not buying the RAM from Apple. It's a DREAM SYSTEM!!!! FOOL!!!!! And I found out that besides Cruical, there is lower priced RAM (GASPING). CAn't Breath.
He's right...the parts are crap. You get name-brands sometimes in your drives, but you could do WAY better. And Apple used to do way better, too. Remember the days when the drives were SCSI-based? Ahhhh.Originally posted by itomato
The thing with Apple's components is that they are ****! The CD burners that are in the new G4 are the same lame piece of $89 trash you can get at Best Buy. Exactly. There are no high-end sound card options direct from Apple, the chip they build onto the G4 is in the same class, if not an idential chip to the $19 PCI sound cards that go in PCs, or get built onto the motherboard. They are also junk. The power supply is built to Apple spec by another cheap Taiwanese OEM, and is probably on par with those from Dell, Gateway, etc, but is no comparison to the high-end offerings from performance components vendors. Same goes for OEM Apple RAM, hard disks (I think), CD rom drives, and keyboards (yuck!).. Basically, buying Apple may be the best you can get, but not if you look at it on a component level. Then, Apple is just as bad as any other whole unit computer maker.
I'd much rather see an IBM 75 GXP, and Plextor or Yamaha optical drives, rather than Maxtor and "Lite-On"..
But then, I'm interested in these things, and they matter to me.
