Are there peeps out there who would want a G4? If so, why?
Sure, if its cheap...I could use a desktop mac when I get my new merom MBP next week.
i'm gonna use mine for classic, as a good 2nd computer, a file server, and torrent box.
imho, if it can run leopard, and a 900 mhz g4 will, then it's still a current computer.
I'd want it as my main machine. Beats the hell out of a 600mhz g3
To run Mac OS 9 (Classic)?
Why wouldn't someone want it? It's still a perfectly good computer. I wouldn't pay very much money for one, but if given one for free, I would happily use it. (It could be easily upgraded to be better than my current desktop, a 1.25 GHz eMac.)
I have an iMac G4 800mhz with 768mb memory and it still runs sweet so surely a 900mhz can be good enough for something.
Because lots of "peeps" still use G3s?
Was this a serious attempt at a thread?
Because they want to save money... WOW hows that for an answer
Yeh - i'm being serious.
The 'cos peeps still use G3's' is a good one. Forgot about them!
It is a bleedin good mac - but I'm moving on up to a MP 3ghz. Dunno whether to keep it or ebay it. It's not the quietest mac in the world. Hmm.
I hate getting rid - I've still got my Classic II
and a Centris 650
and a 8100
I did let my Quadra 610 go tho.
Breaking up is hard to do ;-)
A 933 MHz G4 is a decent machine still. I could run Mac OS 9 or Mac OS X on it and be happy, as long as it had plenty of RAM.
I have an 800 MHz G3 that's still a good machine and perfectly capable of running a lot of software pretty quickly. A 933 MHz G4 could serve iTunes to AirTunes to your stereo very nicely.
512Mb RAM +500Mhz CPU is good enough for OSX, smooth,
My main computer is a 1 GHz G4 and I do everything with it. I run Tiger, iLife, internet, music, burn CDs and DVDs. The only thing I really can't do that I'd like is to watch high definition movie trailers.
The powermac G4 is not obsolete!!!!
I'd love to have one (for the right price) as a secondary machine to use when/if my PB breaks so I can run my Adobe products and other applications.
my gawd - i never thought of that.... hmmm
Put it in your garage and hook it up to some speakers!
Put it in my room.
200mhz faster than the tower we currently have.
When I went from an 867MHz G4 (Powerbook) to a 1.5GHz G4 (also a Powerbook), the difference was fairly subtle for most types of use. Even going from my G4 to the current Mac Pro, basic things aren't shockingly different. IMO a G4 Powermac, with its expandability, is still a fine desktop. As a matter of fact, if I didn't need to run Windows apps for work, I may not have bothered to make the Intel Mac transition at all. That said, I do need to use Windows for work, have bought two Intel Macs to date, and am looking at a third (iMac for my dad).
I don't get it. A badly deformed Ducky wants to rule the world
He is referring to the candy, usually given to kids at Easter here in the U.S.
I heard that they were being exported now, I guess that never took off. Peeps. (Flash required for no good reason)
No love for the G4?
I'm actually picking up a 17" G4 Powerbook soon. Why? Not everyone needs bleeding edge technology, etc. MS Word, Safari, and iTunes don't need 3 ghz of raw power to run.
Can't forget that alot of us are just students or light users.
Yeh but for the price of a maxed out G4 you could get a mac mini - ain't that a better deal?
