I've been a bit of a wanna-be mac user for the past couple of months but have failed a couple times at saving some serious cash for the first mac. (You know how life gets sometimes, savings don't always last.) A friend of mine, however, is looking into getting himself a dual 1.8 G5 and wants me to buy his old mac off him. He's currently working with a g4 800 mhz. Here's the spec's, as he's presented them to me: G4 800mhz (Quicksilver 2002) 512 Ram Radeon 8500 40 gig HD. (I guess that covers most of the essentials.) He's offereing the whole package for 999 (canadian). Now, keep in mind the fact that spending even that much on a computer for me is spending a heck of a lot (I know, I could wait and get a g5 or something, but I'd have to wait quite awhile longer since I don't often save even 1k) (This is where my non-mac friends get all under my skin about the awesome pc I could throw together for that much...). And since I don't know enough about Mac's in general, I wondered if this was a good buy. I typically use my current computer (677mhz intel pc, with win xp) for chatting, music, word processing and the like. I'm sure the machine would suite most of my basic needs... I dunno, i wanted somebody elses opinion on this. Thanks.
