    Hey All,
    Here's the question should I purchase a 1.04Ghz G4 sawtooth upgraded, with ATI Rage 128, 900MB RAM, 200GB hard drive, mouse, keyboard... for $400. I'd like to buy it to use it for a month or so, then resell it maybe on ebay. Sound like a a good purchase? I'd hopefully like to make a few bucks on it as well, thus my interest in buying. Thanks all

    OK there's a few issues here:
    There can never be 900 Mb RAM in a machine. The closest you can get is 896 with a 512, a 256 and a 128.

    The sawtooth cannot utilize a 200 Gb hard drive, unless it has a third-party ATA interface card in it. The maximum single hard drive available that the motherboard can address is 120 Gb. More likely, this machine has a 20 Gb hard drive which would have been big at the time it was made.

    You need more details before you can decide.

    For simplicity's sake I said 900MB of RAM, but yes it is 896MB. The hard drive is a 80 Gig and a 120gig. I've added some screen shots for more info.
