I've been reading some of the forums on using a cheap Mac as a DVR for recording purposes only as well as a music server. I found an iMac DV400 w/ 128MB RAM, 13GB HDD, and supposedly a DVD drive for $150. There's also an iMac G3 700 w/ 256MB RAM, 60GB HDD, and a CD-RW for $350. I have an extra 500MB RAM stick to put in either so that's not an issue. I'll be using an external 400GB Seagate drive for the files. I know neither system will playback HD video but all the forums say the older ones work fine for simply recording. I talked a friend into buying a DV400 last fall when her HP died and she's been more than happy with it for Word and Web stuff. Just wondering if I could maybe get more use out of the 700 since it has a bigger HDD. Just looking for suggestions.
