Very Sexy Mac! A real breakthru when introduced, now an excellent value.
2 July 2013
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 It is now limited by its outdated Power PC processor.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: Does not operate normally but my be recoverable, in any case it is just like my, bought new one and is parts compatible so it is a treasure for me. By the way it is one of the last good mac models till Iphoniacs were born. Booyah!
Summary: This is a good desktop all the apple buffs will say its useless but i run the heck out of this desktop several app at a time watch movies convert videos watch flash and hulu with an easily found modified flashplayer its become my wife and daughters tv during the day dont let the age or mhz or ram fool you powerpc cpus are much faster than their x86 counterparts from that era and mac os gets the most out of your ram if u need a good home use desktop or are trying to get...
Summary: Works well but doesn't play Netflix movies or videos on facebook. They are not supported on non-Intel macs. And the setup is very non-ergonomic. You can't raise or lower the height of the screen. Only tilt it. So, I've had a stiff neck and headaches ever since I bought it. Just had to go buy a higher chair so I'm not looking up at it all the time.
Summary: Runs well for what I need it for. I will need a newer computer as my business expands but I do love my g5! :) My only problem was that I couldn't upgrade to lion. & that was my own fault for not doing my research on the g5.
Summary: I purchased this product originally for parts, but soon realized it only need a few minor repairs not costing a lot of money, and before i knew it, had it up and running. It has a great 20 inch display and has the hard drive and all built right into the screen making it extremely easy to deal with all the cords as there are none.
