    Just bought a PowerMac off Craigslist to use as a web server. Did I get a good deal or can these be found at the dump for fifty cents?

    Paying $500 CDN, pick up tomorrow.

    Thanks

    they can't be found in the dump for 50 cents or even a dollar. But I think it's an oK deal only. You get the a nice tower but a mini would make a better server IMO

    For a webserver, I'd have to agree that one of he older minis would be a better machine; smaller, much quieter, much more power-efficient, etc. However, this isn't to say that the G5 is a bad machine; I still lust after one :p

    There's nothing bad about a dualie G5; enjoy it!

    Well, he did get a room heater as well, so depending on the weather, it might be a great deal ;)
