Love this MAC

rocknsteady, Amazon
10 December 2014
  • Summary: Love this MAC. It takes some getting used to the differences from a PC, but it's quick and I'm getting the hang of it. Only complaint is that I can't connect VIZIO speakers. A techy friend suggested buying a 1080p tv with HDMI to use as a monitor, since it has built in speakers. So I'm trying it.

A good deal

  • Summary: At once you will want to upgrade the memory. I recommend 4 GBs as this is the max. Also you will want to upgrade the hard drive and place a second high capacity drive in the spare bay. There are 2 hard drive slots.

Fun to play with but that's all !

  • Summary: Great fun to play with. problem is, has G5 processors made by IBM and wont run anything recent. A real solid case but is quite HEAVY,( over 40 lbs). If you just want to play with something, give one a try.

  • Summary: I bought the Apple PowerMac G-5 because my pervious PowerMac G-5 had died. This computer does everything that I want it to do. It is a great general purpose computer and an especially good game machine.

A great not-so-new computer

Drift Racer "DriftRacer", Amazon
16 March 2013
  • Summary: First off, for an 8 year old machine, this thing runs exceptionally well. I bought a dual-core G5 just a few months ago, and once I installed leopard on it, its been running flawlessly ever since. Speed for basic tasks is completely fine, and it handles some light audio encoding pretty well.
