    Hi,
    I am buying an iMac G5 (8,1, 1.8ghz, 512mb [upgrading that later] It costs $90 and includes a 'new keyboard', wired mighty mouse, and a 'wireless mac mouse'
    It seemed like a really good deal and is in good condition. Would this machine be able to play 480p and 720p content. Mostly 480p though.
    Thanks

    Sounds like a good deal, and you should be fine playing video as long as you listen to Zen State.

    Fair warning, iMac G5's arent the most reliable ever macs put out.
