    There a little while a go I posted on here talking about buying a mac mini g4 for 65$ but I was going to offer the guy 50$ for it ( I bought it for 50$ ) Well I just got it home and it works great other then being a little sluggish running leopard I will post some pics in a few minutes its in really good condition other then some yellowing, a little while a go I read a post on this forum about optimizing leopard for a ppc computer and I can't seem to locate it if anyone knows where this is could you comment the link for it~Thanks :)

    Hey, Guys Just Got My Mac Mini G4

    Let me tell you, I can tell your new here, as well as the PowerPC community, if this is your first PowerPC Mac, it certainly won't be your last. I should know being that I got a G5 first and now I have 11 PowerPC macs, old and relatively new (G3/G4/G5) mixed together. The G5 I only got last November, and in the span of 4 months I got 10 more PowerPC macs and a Vintage Macintosh 512ke from '86.
    My point is, welcome to the community, and this certainly won't be your last PowerPC Mac. There really is something about them that makes them special ;)

    What's the voltage and max current rating on the power supply of the Mac Mini G4?
