Purchased soly to run software now obsoleted by Apple Computer's Decision to no longer support software written for Power-PC's
16 November 2012
Summary: Apple computer ended support for all software originally written for their Power-PC line of computers. I purchased this relic of a machine soly to run old software, written to help children learn to play chess. It did serve that purpose, but is now just a large loud slow computer, which typified the Poer-PC iMacs. Now that the software has been used for its intent, there is no reason to keep such a computer.
Summary: This product look good when we received it but unfortunately did not work at all! after taking it to 3 different repair shops the last 1 gave us a price of 350 dollars to fix the problem. I sent the item back to the sellar!

Summary: i took this computer to best buy to see what i have to buy to make it work for internet and they said some crappy answer and said id buy another computer it is as good as a paper weight, i got the computer and it had burn marks on the screen and the seller wrote next time invesigate what you buy kind of crap i hate the damn thing and a 30% fee if you return it.
Summary: I bought this computer because I was wanting to transition over to a MAC and I thought this would be a good starter one. First thing is first the seller lied about the product description, CD-ROM drive does not work and neither does the on button. You can't just click the "ON" button and it turns. No you have to hold the button down until it makes this awful beeping noise then let go and hope for the best.
Summary: I learned the hard way that many early iMac G5 models were manufactured with faulty capacitors and that Apple had a program- long since discontinued- to fix this problem for free. Unbeknownst to the seller, the unit I received had this problem and had to be returned.
