    Will an Xserve G4 work as a normal desktop computer? My other option is a similarly spec-ed Powermac G4. I will just use it for normal day to day use, like internet and some light photoshop. They are the same price, so cost is a non issue.

    Not all Xserves have video cards (ie. you can't use a monitor). They are designed to be workhorses that are accessed and controlled remotely.

    And, as Umbongo mentioned, they are noisy as heck.
