    So I was at a T-shirt making place today picking up an order and happened to comment on their assortment of G4s. The guy told me that they were upgrading soon and would be happy to get rid of their old machines. Guess what? I'll be getting quite a few G4s on my hands soon! What a deal!

    Nice one! Offices usually have great deals when clearing out their old furniture and technology when it's time to upgrade.

    But what are you gonna do with all those G4's ... ? :eek:

    I have to say it's really a great deal. I'm still in the dark a bit as to what shape they'll be in, but from what I can tell, they're in great shape. I saw two iMac G4s (17" too) as well as two PowerMac G4s and who knows what else they have around. I love the G4 designs, they're just fantastic, I can't believe my luck. The guy was really nice, he even had an old Macintosh SE (but that wasn't being disposed of). Boy I made out like a bandit (or will, that is)!

    My son bought 7 (!) PowerMac G4's that his college was getting rid of.

    Paying? Not a lot, they were just going to throw them away as far as I what he told me. I might pay 'em a little for the trouble.

    Damn I would love it if I could get my hands on a G4 to experiment with using a Mac as a server. Want to sell one of em? :D Really cheap?

    Oh, I think I'll keep them around for a while, but I might be tempted to sell... just don't get your hopes up :D
