    Hi does the above mac come with USB 2.0 as standard USB ports.
    I have been offered a G4 but cant determine if it is USB1 or 2. Its the standard ports on the back of the machine and doesnt have any PCi cards 9apart from the one for the display).
    I cant access it currently to check as its hard disc has been removed.

    My current, old G3, blue, running OS 10.4 has a 160gb hard disc in it. Will I be able to transfer this disc and hence its content to the G4?
    Any help appreciated.

    lowendmac.com's profile has it as USB 1.1 only, but you will be able to transfer the hard disk over.

    Quite a few already have the drivers built into OSX. Here's one from OWC that will do the job :)
