Cool! I really like the G4 iMacs.

Cool deal!

Does it come with the clear, plastic bubble speakers? Now, you'll need - if not already - get a matching Harman Kardon iSub to complete a head-turning, great sounding desktop which your friends will talk and drool about!

One can upgrade these iMac G4's to 2GB RAM - if you have not planned to do this already.

you can also use partitioning tools to go above the set firmware limit for hard drive's

Several tools are great for the g4 and g3 imac's even.

on my g3 i was able to partition a 500 gig hard drive to work with my g3 when the set limit which cannot be changed is 120 gig's

On this particular iMac G4 model, I understand that there is no practical limit on the size of the HDD connected. I have installed a 320GB HDD.

If it were me, I'd keep it. I just decided to keep my iMac G3, my eMac 700MHz. Y my iBook G4. Only a Mac User for under 3 years but I see the value in even Apple's Older Macs. They are a lot harder for me to Part with than my PC's are. I wonder why ? Smile

If I were you, I'd keep it. You can use it as a backup system or a media server or something like that. Also, that was probably the coolest design Apple has ever come up with.
