    Seller lives nearby, wanted $210. Figured I'd low ball and to my surprise he accepted my $150 offer.

    The screen on my Imac is bleeding, making it terribly difficult to get any work done. I figured $150 to tide me over for a few weeks until I can afford a legit upgrade seemed logical, assuming it will function for at-least a year as a media system.

    I'm unfamiliar w/ the g4 ppc units..Will it operate sufficiently as a media player, preferably running boxee, for after I find a new replacement?

    The specs seem to retail about double my asking online, but I can't shake the feeling that the age of the system may not make this such a hot deal.

    Any opinions appreciated.

    ^^ Thanks neighbor. I thought that might be the case, appreciate the clarification. Probably a deal breaker unfortunately.
