Just bought PowerMac G4 Cube 450Mhz + Display for $160! Is it a good deal?

    I think so, good condition and with a display/power supply. The only thing I would be worried is the lack of speakers, without them it will not play any sound.
    Didn't notice 1.25 GB RAM and 80 GB HDD. Nice upgrades ;)

    Wow, you have the new Retina iMac? Saw it at Apple store; how are you liking it?

    PPC forever :)

    Other than the usual IPS problems the display is absolutely stunning. Yosemite screems on it, especially the upgraded GPU.

    I just couldn't go back to a standard pixel density. Once you've used a retina MacBook Pro or iMac (and I've been on my rMBP since 2012) I'm sad to say standard displays just look inferior.

    Oh, but pixelated PPC Leopard will always have its glossy charm.
