    1.83 GH, .1.5 GB memory, 160GB HD, single-processor G5 Power Mac, for $550


    Is it worth it to run Logic 7.0?? That's all I would use it for. Right now, I'm running it on a PBG4, 15 GHz, 2GB RAM and am having some glitches.

    Is the performance that much better to justify getting a G5 for that price?

    Thanks for any input and advice.

    First off, I wish I could find a G5 for that price lol. I don't know much about G5 Power Mac pricing, but that seems way too low for that setup. Do you know for a fact that this is legit? Like, do you know the person selling personally? I would do a few checks on this before pulling the trigger. Though, if it is legit, I think it would definitely be worth it.

    Edit: Also, I may be wrong, but I don't think there was a 1.83ghz G5. There was a 1.8ghz single G5 Power Mac.

    MAke sure you;re getting the original OSX CDs with it, otherwise you'll have to buy a retail set. Also look for the DBI-VGA adaptor. (also missing CDs and accessories are an indication of stolen equipment)
