If I had the money, I'd buy one and do all the upgrades.
Whats the fastest model anyway?
no, your not an idiot.
personally, i think they are one of the coolest apple products ever and don't know why they discontinued them. it's a shame apple get's rid of all the old cool computers so fast
(of course, the processor can be upgraded)
Nah, i want one too.
super-cool box. once i have more disposable money i might get one and upgrade everything i can. Use it for a music/web/whatever box in the livingroom.
I would take that over any other Windows PC.
I think I am determined to get one. I have (have had for a while) a cube case right now
Should I just buy all the parts and the upgraded processor/board? Powerlogix makes a 1.2ghz that I'm eyeing but I dunno if that's more expensive or not than just getting a complete system maybe from the cubeowner forums
no, they are cool
It looks like 1.7GHz G4 (for $499).
Cube processor upgrades
I had one briefly......pretty neat set up, sold it though.
the lack of configurability threw me off, but it sure looked cool on the desk.
The design is bad ass except for the fact that there is 0 cooling inside as far as I can remember. No fans, no nothing. What's up with that?
they could get away with it when it was running stock 450mhz.
I'm upping it to at least 1.2 and a fan will be a necessity then
Ah yes, the sonnnet upgrade
I agree. The whole design is pretty sweet...but no fans? my god. you couldn't get an upgraded processor without installing a fan or else the whole thing would like explode! (i, think lol)
Yeah installing a fan wouldn't be a big deal for me...there are really cool mods on how people have done it to their cubes...I'd cut my own grille design for it too
Dam, that would almost make it worth it to get one.
I saw this at macrumors.com.... http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=102638
looks like it would be the new "cube"
I saw that on offtopic.com http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?t=1511880
I swear that computer will be a collector's item someday
it was sexy too
it was convection cooled, which was actually a pretty sweet bit of engineering on Apple's part... but yeah, given the heat dissipation of Motorola's G4s it probably wouldn't have been possible to go to higher speeds for too much longer.
guess what i'm getting guys...
