Wow...it has been a while since I've been on here, but I'm back for more help. I should have started this thread before I hit the Buy It Now button, but my spending habits got the best of me. My iBook G3 has been an awesome machine for me, it did what I wanted, introduce me to OS X. The second I starting using OS X I was hooked and I now have 2 G3 macs. But, times are getting slow on the ol' iBook G3 and I'm getting kind of tired of it. So, my impulse buy of the day was a PowerMac G4 Sawtooth 400. Hold on, before you say I'm crazy, check out the specs: Hardware: 400mhz AGP Graphics 400mhz 512mb RAM Lite-On DVD-RW Superdrive (Lightscribe, Dual-layer, etc.) ATI Radeon 8500 64mb DDR graphics memory (original card included) 110gb HDD (30gb & 80gb) Software: Tiger, iLife 06, Microsoft Office 2004 SV, Photoshop CS, Toast 8 on 80gb HDD OS 9.2 on 30gb HDD Looks to be in awesome cosmetic condition. I got all that for $140 shipped on eBay. I saw all those add-ons and I couldn't resist. I also grabbed a 15" Dell Flat Screen for $100 shipped. The seller of the Sawtooth has 100% positive feedback and over 300 reviews. So, do you think this setup will perform better than my iBook G3 (specs in sig.)? With this system I hope to experiment more with video editing which I wasn't able to pursue with the G3. I edited A LOT on my Windows machine before I bought the G3, but I soon learned the G3 was not video editing capable. Did I make a mistake or will I see a difference using this "newer" G4? I couldn't get a new machine because I just added on a new monthly payment (08 Yamaha Raptor 350 ). I may or may not sell the iBook, I'll have to see. It's a handy mac to have around. Thanks again in advance!
