    Now how good of a deal is this?

    I'm debating on purchasing one now, even though I have a Macbook Pro that is one year old and I love to death. I would buy this to maybe edit some footage on and stuff but do you all think this is a good price?

    Is the display on this model good too? Never seen a G5.

    Don't buy it. In my opinion, they're worthless. (YES, I'm aware that they work) but still, old technology... meh.

    Let's point this out,
    80GB HDD

    I have no idea why you would want to 'edit some footage' on a 1.6ghz, 512 RAM computer compared to your shiny, sparkly, fast new Macbook.

    Oh, it doesn't come with an OS disk so you need to find a leopard disk because snow leopard won't work.

    Hahaha you're probably right. Someone at my work wants it for browsing. Do you think its even worth that?

    If it's only for browsing, get a cheap PC, really. $249 for an iMac that may perform worse than some netbooks isn't worth it IMO.
