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.

I am delighted with the Apple PowerMac G-5.

adolfneumann, Ebay
3 July 2013
  • 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. Like most people, we use it as word processing machines, spreadsheet processors, powerpoint generation and playing games. The box is bigger and heaviier than other desktop computers, but it does everything I want it to do.

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. OS X 10.5.8 feels snappy on this machine, although, I feel like the 1GB of RAM I have installed is starting to show it's shortcomings. However, that's an easy fix.

Valued product at such a low price. Lovely.

jayerx2013, Ebay

  • Summary: I got a good price of $68.00 with $30.00 shipping for this beauty. I bought this product because ina few years they may be worth more then you expect. These computers are the first 64 - bit computers. I also bought it because my Mac Pro 11 is really slow so I wanted a cheap way to get a new desktop. Pros and Cons. Pros: Speed, price, history, awesome. Cns: Ethernet only, 2003 of age, and low ram.
