I posted this exact thing on an IGN forum as well. Thought I would try here too. Alright. I have a predicament. I've been longing for an Apple desktop, but I'm in college and don't really want to spend too much money. I also don't need the latest and greatest and am perfectly happy with used or refurbished. My favorite computer of all time, hands down, is the sunflower styled iMac G4. I never got it though, and I sort of regret it now. It's a beautiful machine and I just have to own it one day regardless of how outdated it will be come 2015. Odd, yes. I like the white plastic iMacs too, at the start of Intel, with the Jay Leno chins. Not nearly as much as the G4, but still. Lately I've been on eBay going for the G4s - they go for about $400 and the Intel Core Duos or Core 2 Duos go for $600 to $800. I don't care how fast it works as long as it works. I have a 1.33ghz iBook G4 so am aware of the kinds of speeds a G4 iMac would hit at 1.25ghz. I would like Leopard either way, and I'd upgrade the ram if I got the G4. What are the positives or negatives to getting the G4 or any of the first Intel ones, and what outweighs what in that contest? Which one would you go for and why? Which one should I get?
