Hello all! My favorite computer I ever owned was my PowerMac G5. It's a 1.6Ghz model with 2GB of memory and 2x250GB HDDs. I bought it in 2004 for $1299 from the refurb store at apple.com. I used it for 5 years, and loved every minute of it! Eventually, it started getting really slow, and I upgraded to a 2009 Mac Mini. The mini ran circles around the G5, but the Powermac could still do small tasks like email/web browsing/writing papers/etc, so I gave it to my parents to use. Fast forward 6 more years, and my parents finally upgraded to a 5K iMac, and no longer needed the G5. So... I took it home. It's really really dirty, and the keyboard was disgusting now. Also, the original box went missing. I started cleaning the keyboard with a damp cloth and a drop of detergent, but I must have gotten some down inside (I swear nothing went down there, but who can be sure?). Now the keyboard doesn't work at all. I'll have to disassemble it and see if any of the traces were damaged. The machine itself just needs to be cleaned (heavily), and re-imaged. Who knows what's on this thing, and frankly, who cares? Plans are to upgrade to 4GB of memory and put in a SSD for a boot drive. I'd like to turn it into a music player and put it out near my workbench in my garage. I'm glad I got it back! Here's the mac during it's hayday around 2005-2006 or so: and here it is today: And it's guts: Unfortunately, I sold my old cinema displays, so that won't be happening unless I locate another one. I'll be using my Samsung 22" monitor on it until I find a proper Apple monitor for it.
