    It all depends on the model, but probably no.

    That's just slightly more than what I paid for my MDD (dual 1GHz) off ebay with shipping included.

    With a little looking around you can find yourself a good G5. I got mine with
    8 gigs of ram, a retail iwork 09 and leopard Disk etc. all of that for 80 €. I personally think that g4 machines are too old to be useful without any massive upgrades. G5s are still pretty useful.

    I paid about 40€ for my g4 which was much too much. In Germany G4s go in the Region of 20 to 25€ for the early G4s http://kleinanzeigen.ebay.de/anzeigen/s-anzeige/apple-powermac-g4/185337630-228-7964

    Can you at least give us the model and the specs? Being a G4 it could range from a lowly 350MHz to a MDD dual 1.25GHz.

    If it's a 1.25GHz or 1.42GHz MDD... get it! Now if it's like a gigabit/DA G4 then I'd pass.

    That sounds like a Quicksilver with a hard drive out of some G3 era mac.

    That really doesnt sound like a good deal then...by the way my g4 350mhz agp came with two apple branded hdds totaling to 90 gigs of storage.
