    Hi all - I'm awaiting delivery of a new MBP, and now currently trying to decide what to do with my old iMac. It's a g5 model, 2.0ghz, and the optical drive no longer works and graphics card is screwed (giving me lines and distortion on the screen depending what I do - but in particular if using WMP). So I wouldn't get much for it on ebay.

    So I thought I'd use it primarily as an iTunes / Spotify hi-fi - but has anyone got any other ideas about how I could use it? How about any clever sync / backup ideas? (The iMac is running Tiger.)

    Any thoughts or ideas appreciated!

    Kitchen or bedroom jukebox.

    If you are able to pull the LCD and inverter out safely, that will fetch you a pretty penny on ebay along with the powersupply.
