I have a PowerMac G4 MDD 1.0 DP which I got just as the MDDs came out. It is now my girlfriends computer and we are REALLY tight on money. I am toying with two choices. The first is buying a PowerMac G4 MDD 1.25DP or 1.42 DP, moving the 1.0DPs stuff to the newer one, and using the 1.0DP as a ready source of spare parts. However, I am noticing that the G5 1.8 is about the same price as the 1.25 DP and cheaper then the 1.42 DP. So I am considering buying a 1.8 G5 instead. Now, durability is a big issue here. I don't expect to be able to purchase a new computer for several years and PCs are out of the question. Speed is not a huge issue, but her ability to continue using web-based applications such as Oekaki and other java-based or Flash-based apps and the like for that time period is. We are both web-dwellers to some extent. I can do basic repairs myself, I don't mind a fan or the like failing. But I can't afford to go out and buy another computer after this. It will drain me. So given the above, which makes more sense?
