I was searching around and came across this Power Mac G4 for $200. I was wondering if this would be a good machine to start my mom out on (long time windows user. Sad ) I comes with OS X 10.4.8. Thanks

It probably would be good for your mom. Do you have any more information on it, which model G4, processor size, HD size, RAM? I have one of the original G4s, which was originally a 400mhz processor. I installed a 1.2Ghz processor in it and it still works great, my daughter uses it. I haven't installed Leopard on it because it was a 400mhz to begin with, but it is still a great machine.

There are simple work arounds to get leopard on a machine that was originally below the 867mhz threshold.

Thanks for the replies. The guy listed it as dual 500 MHz processor and 1 GB RAM. It also has a 100 GB HDD and once again OS 10.4.8

Thanks, trustory, I know there are workarounds, but since my daughter is using it, I'm going to leave it alone for a few months. I'll be getting her a new MacBook for graduation and then I'll take back my old G4 and upgrade it then after I transfer all her stuff over. I'm not sure what I'll do with it, but I kind of attached to it. I gave it to her when I got my mini.

I would take it for $200, it sounds like either a Sawtooth as my remaining G4 is or a Giagbit ethernet that came out afterwards. If so, it has 4 memory slots and will accept up to 2GB of Ram. I think it sounds like a good deal.
