A great way to end the PPC Legacy

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

The G5 powermac is the end of the line of the PowerPC Macintoshes. That being said if you have old OS X software this is *THE* machine to get. If you have old OS 9 based PowerPC software, this is the fastest machine you can run it on, provided you have OS X 10.4 as it still supports classic, while 10.5 removed it.

These machines tend to run HOT & LOUD under load... but I don't think there is a cheaper way to get a powerhouse to run iDVD, esp sub $300... Avoid ones with damaged water cooling setups, if you must buy damaged look for ones with system errors that at least boot up.. it could be simple bad ram/disks which are trivial to swap.

Apple G5 Desktop

This is a fast machine. Works well with 4 Ghz of Ram memory.The only reason to change to intel Mac is that they use some of the newer software not available for this version. Most things are compatable with Iphone, ipod and ipad, linking them together using iWeb services.

Powerful Computer, but no Intel Processor.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I bought this computer at $610, it's extremely powerful, and very fast. It's only flaw, is that it doesn't have one of the new Intel processors. Now that might not seem like a big deal at first, but it kind of is. Intel processors require that apple program their software differently, so if you plan on buying any top of the line video editing or graphical software, whether it be final cut or Adobe products, forget about it. Final Cut 6 (or Final Cut Studio 2), and Adobe CS4, are the last generations of software that will function on this computer. Now with that said, FC 6, and CS4 are still pretty powerful, and you definitely don't need every new bell and whistle to make awesome products. I say if you're just getting into film making, or graphical design, this is a great investment. Oh. And it can't boot windows.

Great machine but somewhat limited by 10.5.8 OS PPC. Bang for the buck A+

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

It's a 7 year old machine and it still rocks. I think this is the fastest PPC machine Apple ever made. G5 quad core. It seems to be as fast as my 2010 MBP, but that's totally subjective.

The box is very heavy and hard to move around, but the insides are easy to access. The fans seems to kick on less than the Dual G5 2.7 I used to own, and it is far faster (80% faster I read). You can put 16gb of memory in this beast and 2 SATA drives easily. More drives are possible with add ins.

If you know what you are doing, and don't need the latest and greatest, this is a great machine that you can pick up for short money.

Still an awesome computer in 2012 and it worth it.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This PowerMac G5 is the lastest of the series. It is, still in 2012, a powerful desktop computer. The only thing to be aware is that being on a PowerPC architecture, the number of available applications is continuously going down.

Anyway, this G5 is perfect for a server (having two hard drives, plus with additional card, a possibility to five), for a development machine, and much more.

It definitively worth the small price for the quality of the machine.
