    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
    512RAM
    1.6GHZ

    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.

    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.
