Summary: I purchased this tower for the intentions of recording but was let down. The people I purchased it from shouldn't be aloud to be on Amazon any longer. The box it was shipped in looked like it was 30 years old and was in bad shape.
Summary: I bought the computer while I was in Afghanistan, had it sent home to my wife and kids so they would have a real good computer to Skype with me.........computer did not work, bought an ASUS (new) instead of worrying about this apple computer.
Summary: I bought this for my husband. He works in the music industry, I know nothing about computers, the price was right for me at the time. We weren't able to use this tower the version was too old to run protools. This was a waste of our money. I wasn't able to return it.
Summary: This is a great computer, hobbled by a very weak graphics card. 64MB???? What planet do they live on? You can't even run a basic 3D game on that (not anything new). You are in the right place. A dual 2GHz G5 *is* the right machine. Just keep moving up till you have a 256MB video card.
Summary: I have been a Mac afficianado for 20 years and owned or useed at least 20 models professionally. I know I will get a low "helpful" rating on this review, but I suspect professionals and some people who really understand where Mac has failed will agree.
Summary: To begin, the customer service provided by Vertexpc is terrible. That said, the ad for the Mac G5 was lacking information on the unit. In an ad for a computer, I need to know the following items: Size and weight, video card specifics, if it is video adapter capable, memory and storage specifics,...
Summary: No power lead, no upgrade as stated, slow as a snail, constant spinning ball, constantly displayed message 'Safari is causing system to run slow' (or something like) - this was before I even used the PC. It would not download apps i.e. MS Word for Mac, Chrome browser, App Store, I Photo etc.
