    I was wondering what are the reasons to stick with the iMac G4 or PowerMac G4 since the PowerMac G5/Mac Pro are the standards for today?

    Lack of money to upgrade?
    OS9 Bootable?
    Software that doesn't run on X?
    No need to upgrade?
    Like the looks better?
    No compulsion to keep up with the latest new thing?

    I drive a 10 year old car and use a G4 tower for approximately the reasons above.

    i would use it because it would get the job done for me...and probably would for most general computer users.

    i mainly just surf the web and burn dvd's on my powermac so a g4 tower would be fine for me. sometimes i use my g4 powerbook to do all these things and it works fine....although i am selling my tibook, but that is because of monetary issues

    If it does all that the person needs it to do then it is a waste of money to upgrade now.
