I want to thank all of you for your advice earlier about buying a G4 vs. waiting. i do have another question though about G4's. On ebay, the dual processor G4 1 ghz and 1.25 ghz go for about $600 to $800. Most of you told me to wait for an intel mac but it makes me wonder; why are these supposed obsolete macs going for such a high price? I know that you can get better video cards and more hard drives but should they be going for that high? You can get a nicely equiped mini for $800-900 so why are these computers just a little less expensive. How would the performance of a dual 1.25 ghz powermac be compared to my 512k 1.25 mini? What do you use your g4's for and how long will they be a viable machine? I like the fact that they can be upgraded but don't want it to be a doorstop in a year. Any and all comments are appreciated.
