Love this machine but wish it could run current high-end commercial apps

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I do freelance design on my Mac. I bought this to replace my original G5 dual when its power supply failed (and I failed to repair it myself!). I was able to just migrate my storage (and OS, apps, etc.), memory and newer superdrive to it and was back up working in under 2 hours. These machines are workhorses. My only gripe is not with the G5 but with Software companies for abandoning the universal builds so the apps run on both the newer intel and the older PowerPC systems (like this one). Most high-end applications released after 2009 probably won't work on these.

Excellent replacement for our office computer.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Our office Mac G5 ended up with a bad core and had to be replaced. I pulled the hard drive from our maching and slapped into this one and viola! It worked perfectly!

All in all, a great performing product and value for your dollar.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I bought this Mac G5 because I need to upgrade my hardware. New software required an updated system and my G4 was just too old. What I dislike is the metal case. I've been a Mac user since 1988 and I think the metal cases of newer models, desktop and notebooks alike, are the most fragile of any computer I've owned over the years; they easily dent and ding or worse. I much preferred those of the blue and white G3s and all those of the G4s. The most durable notebook case was on my Powerbook 165 and 180 followed by my Wallstreet. I still occasionally use the Wallstreet and, since it is a relatively tough plastic, it is still in good shape. My newer 17" G4 hasn't fared as well even though I'm just as careful with it.
I'm kind of stuck, though; staying up-to-date means ditching my old favorites and going with the flow. I only have complaints with the package—everything else is tops as it has been since the first Mac.

Great computer.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

My first actual experience with a Mac, So far I really like quality of the design and simplicity of the OS. When my PC is outdated, I may switch to Macs.
