Used iMac for Replacement
The unit came quickly and worked. The cosmetic marks were as specified; the unit looked like the one in the photo.

Good for what I paid for..
It's nice .. And I can't expect to work like the other stuff now for that price.. It's good for internet..<br>Watching DVD .. It's just like if you need to do something in the computer you have one.. At least. Surfin, you tube, news, even it's slow you'll still get there..

Its a great buy! Highly recommended!!!
Buying one of these computer used in good condition is the best bargain on the market. All the software that you need, you can still get, and a good portion of it is freeware.<br><br>True the processor may not be as fast as computers on todays market, but do not let the clock speed fool you. If you compare them to a road, these Power PC processors are like a 6-lane super-highway with a speed limit of 50, but some of these newer processors are like a 2-lane highway with a speed limit of 70. Sure, they have a faster speed, but they certainly are not as capable of handling large volumes of cars, or in this case, data.<br><br>These computers are certainly workhorses and they are lightning-fast.<br><br>The only thing I dislike about these computers is that they can be fragile, Place it where it is going to go and leave it. Buy a laptop if you are going to take it with you on vacation.Read full review

Was top of the line when produced, quiet and efficient. Has airport [wireless] and 1 gig of ram, compact. Is running Tiger 4.3 and reads and burns CD's and DVDs without burn failures. It will handle Leopard 10.5.1 as long as for a G processor and not intel
