So I have a G4 iMac, 1ghz, with 768Mg ram sitting in the closet and want to do something with it. It currently has the last version of Tiger installed (if I recall) and I think it will run Leopard, if a bit slowly. My daily use machine is a mid-2009 13" MacBook Pro running Lion. So I have a couple of thoughts about the iMac and would love some input and/or alternatives. 1) give it away to a friend or to the Goodwill and continue using the MBP for all my computing needs (which it handles brilliantly) 2) use it as a jukebox and media server, if it will play nicely with the newer hardware. I've hunted around on the interwebs and found some information on using these machines as nas servers and whatnot, but most of the info is rather old, so if anyone has any advice on using these old machines as media servers, let me know. I have several external drives, and could easily hook up a 1TB FW400 to increase the storage. But would the G4 iMac run Hulu and Netflix? (I could, of course, unbox the machine and check, or look up system requirements... and the answer to this is NO - Hulu recommends a 1.33Ghz processor, and Netflix requires an Intel machine... So it looks like 1) is my best option, unless you have other thoughts.) I checked on ebay, and it doesn't look like anyone's buying old G4 iMacs and I could probably get a better deal using it as a tax write-off than I could make selling it. Thing is, I really love that old computer. It was my first mac, and it's a beautiful machine, brilliantly designed (imo), and still largely functional for general computer usage. But I really want to free up the closet space, so I need to put it to use or get rid of it. If anyone has any thoughts, I'd love to hear them. Thanks in advance! And if this is the wrong forum, please point me to the correct one.
