Working tech support does have its perks. A local company was going to dump some 'old macs' they were no longer using, so I asked if I could have them instead. They said fine as long as I also took some very heavy backup power supply rack units to dispose of. Seemed like a good deal to me. I ended up receiving: two MacBook Pro 3,1 15" one Macbook Pro 4,1 15" one Macbook white (not sure yet which one, havent gotten to it) one ibook G4 1.2ghz 12" one ibook G4 1.33ghz 12" one Powermac G5 single 1.8ghz 8 ram slots with fx5200 vid one Powermac G5 dual 1.8ghz 4 ram slots with fx5200 vid one Powermac G5 dual 2.0ghz 4 ram slots with fx5200 vid one Powermac G5 dual 2.0ghz 8 ram slots with 9600 vid one Powermac G5 dual core 2.3ghz with 6600 vid one Mac Pro 1,1 with 7300 vid one Mac Pro 3,1 with hd2600 vid one ADC Cinema LCD 15" four Cinema aluminum 20" one Wacom tablet ETC-640 two USB scanner HP two very heavy APC rack mount power backups bag of assorted manuals for G5, displays, and adc/dvi converter All the mac towers work, except one has a bad headphone jack, thinks there is headphones plugged in all the time, and one mac pro had a dead hard disk. Both mac pro's had 1TB second disks added. The 3,1 had some 667 ram installed, so I put that in the 1,1. After switching parts around, trading ram around, and just trying to clean up the mess, I ended up with: Macbook pro 4,1 2.4ghz, 6gig ram, 200gig drive, fresh ElCapitan G5 dual 1.8 2gb ram, 160gb drive, fx5200, fresh leopard with ilife09, iwork09, tenfourfox G5 dual 2.0 2gb ram, 160gb drive, fx5200, fresh leopard with ilife09, iwork09, tenfourfox MacPro 1,1 2.66ghz 4core, 11gig ram, 1TB drive, HD2600 vid, fresh ElCapitan MacPro 3,1 2.8ghz 8core 4gig ram, 1TB drive HD5770 vid, fresh ElCapitan Scattered in the G5 towers, was a set of eight matching 1gig dimms, I took them all and put them in my best G5 7,3 tower, the one with the x850xt, now it has 8gig ram. Not sure what to do with the G5 single 1.8 with 8 ram slots, lightbulbfreak says its a rare one, but its a 7,2 and I'm guessing probably not reliable, tho right now, it does seem to work fine. The G5 DC 2.3 I'm in the middle of working on, if it works and is 100%, then I'm going to replace my G5 Quad with it. I love the quad, but mine has a bent foot, and I HATE the water cooling system in it. The DC 2.3 isnt as fast, but its reliable and will never have idiot water leaks. I'll transfer over the vid card, ram, disks, wifi/bluetooth, and just let it replace the quad. The other laptops, I havent put time into, the ibook 1.33 12" is in amazing condition, but its power socket is damaged, I cant plug in the charger. Only tested one of the aluminum 20" monitor so far, it works 100%, really happy about those monitors. Anyway, just wanted to share. Thanks to LightBulbFun for helping me out as I work on these with friendly advice and comments via skype. Update: I finished rebuilding the Powermac G5 2.3DC, it came out great and works perfectly. Specs now are: 2.3ghz dual core G5, 16gig ecc ram, wifi/bluetooth, nvidia quadro fx4500, two 500gig HD I also finished fixing up the single 1.8ghz G5. Specs now are: 1.8ghz single G5 8-slot, 4gig ram, wifi, radeon 9600, 160gig HD. Both running Leopard with ilife09, iwork09, and some of my other apps.
