Only payed $30! I guess my incessant whining about the over-pricing finally payed off. Currently, I am playing a toddler game I played 12 years ago, memories hahahaha. It is running 9.2.1, and has a boatload of software installed. Microsoft Word, Internet Explorer, Final Cut Pro, iMovie, Dreamweaver, iTunes (and more, haven't sifted through the drive yet). I plan to upgrade the 3.5" IDE to something quieter, after that, it will be as silent as a mouse . The speakers sound a bit tinny (dusty), but the case has virtually no scratches, the CRT is very bright, and the CD drive works speedily (not like my failing Cube).
