Summary: not only are these macintoshes prone to failure because of a flaw in the power supply the capacitors on the mainboard fail causing system failure every time oh and for accessing the internet forget it flash player no longer works on mac os x 10.5 which is the only o.s this runs
Summary: The delivery of the iMac G5 was on time and secured. The iMac arrived in a well packaged boxed with bubble wrap. All parts were present. The iMac powered up with a clear screen and all ports were in working order. All files has been removed and Microsoft Office was installed. The iMac works very well and has been a great addition to my classroom!
Very Sexy Mac! A real breakthru when introduced, now an excellent value.

Summary: I have had one of these since they came out; got mine ca. 2006. This machine did everything I needed - including Photoshop and some light video editing. My daily activities really barely challenged this capable machine. I never hardwired it to the web. I just used the built in Airport wireless to talk to my Airport Base station and it also ran fine on Linksys. It is now limited by its outdated Power PC processor.
Summary: the computer runs great it is loud but works great for what i use it for and compliments my new i mac which is next to it well. it had no wireless card and i had to replace the Ethernet card. some boo-radly right there it cost as much as the computer.
