    Hey everyone.

    Was browsing craigslist and I came across a sale for a powermac 566 (or 533) with airport for 50 bucks. Went there, he had some more, two dual 450 powermacs with airport and 80 gig hard drives.

    So basically I picked them both up for 100 bucks, only 50 each. Total of 7 sticks of ram, 1-512, 1-256 and 5 128.

    Sounds good to me, what about you guys?

    sounds good to me. G4 PowerMacs are great machines. I say max one out the best you can and keep the other one for parts. Should last several more years and run Leopard fairly well if you can get the RAM up to 2 GB. I'd suggest upgrading the video card though.

    I've been watching eBay, and you got a better deal than you'll generally find there.
    If nothing else, the airport cards are worth almost 100 a piece.
