This is my second iMac G5 17 in. Easy to work on and a joy to use. 3 screws and you are inside with memory, hard drive and other upgradable items at your finger tips. At 1.8 GHz it has speed and runs programs without any lag. As these Macs become older they become a better buy. I am looking for the Intel Macs to start lowering their prices. It is what makes EBay fun.
I learned the hard way that many early iMac G5 models were manufactured with faulty capacitors and that Apple had a program- long since discontinued- to fix this problem for free. Unbeknownst to the seller, the unit I received had this problem and had to be returned.
Ease of use. Help feature is truly help. Set up is a breeze. I have owned Mac's for nine years and will never go back to a PC. No annoying updates. Excellent for making movies. Another great thing is that I can just unplug the printer and unplug my iMac and move it. Like a laptop but better. Nice screen and wonderful screen savers. I love Mac's and always will be a Mac user.
WHEN oh when will the Windows (ugh) people learn????
MAC IS GOD!
Since 1884, Mac has ruled the computer world ... Windows (Microsnuff) THINKS it
has the best product ... when placed side by side, Mac runs Circles, squares and parallelograms
around Winndows (ugh) Computers ...
PROOF???? - Mac can run Windows software ... can Windows say that? NOT!
it was broken when i bought it. i bought it as a fix-it project for the summer. i still haven't gotten around to it but i hope to make a pretty cool super-computer type thing out of it.
