    Hi everyone

    I came upon an ad on kijiji for an old power Mac G4. It was nothing special until I looked at what was inside it. Now, I don't like close to the seller but had a friend pick this up. It looks like a processor upgrade. Would any of you have an idea about which one it could be?

    Newertech G4 Dual.

    Possibly a 1.8Ghz. They'll have switches on them that let you bump it up to 2.0 if that's the case. Better put some hardcore fans on it though if it's what I think and you want 2.0Ghz.

    Awesome find. Hope you didn't pay a lot.

    That sounds great, hopefully I can get it up and running. I got it for $20 in a supposedly non functioning G4.

    If you can get that working and it is what I think it is, then you've scored big!
