    All the MDDs are great... they were the best G4 tower, IMO. The fans don't bother me at all.

    I have 2....

    A Dual 1.0 MDD w/2GB of RAM, 80GB HD and a 40GB HD, which is my main Mac.
    And a non working 1.25GHz MDD...it has a dead power supply.

    I have 2 as well... a dual 1.42 (see my sig - fully loaded) and a single 1.25...

    The dual is my main... with my hackbook as my mobile. I just love the design.

    I am currently in the field and I have ordered a sonnect USB card from OWC as well as 2 pcs of 320Gb HDD which I would like to make a software raid with it as my boot drive. I have thought for an SSD but the price is the deal breaker.

    Have fun with our FW800 G4's.

    I just got a Quicksilver 2002 :D Just as good, albeit they had slower processor configurations. Although the audio jack has a lot of hissing :mad: Otherwise built like a tank.
