    Power Mac G4 (QuickSilver series):

    * 733 MHz G4
    * 1.25 GB PC-133 memory
    * 120 GB Seagate Barracuda IDE HDD (8 MB buffer, 7200 RPM)
    * Pioneer DVD-R/W DVR-107D (the same DVD burner released in the first-gen G5, and shows up as an Apple OEM drive)
    * Nexus 120mm case fan installed for quieter performance
    * ATI Radeon 7500 (32 MB, AGP)
    * Sonnet Technologies Aria Extreme PCI (allows non-AE Macs to use AE)
    * Samsung ML-2010 USB laser printer
    * MS Natural Keyboard Elite
    * MS WheelMouse Optical
    * OS: 10.4.8
    * 17" Sony StyleMaster LCD
    * Altec Lansing ACS45 speakers

    Some OS-level tweaks applied:

    * Disabled all fonts except for critical system fonts and fonts I frequently use in Office
    * Disabled virtual memory
    * Disabled a significant amount of System services and kernel extensions
    * Customized Apple menu
    * Disabled all Finder services
    * Disabled numerous System Preferences
    * Disabled all screen savers, installed simple blank screen screen saver
    * Disabled all sounds except a couple of custom ones I use
    * Shadowkiller application installed (eliminates shadows from all windows when activated)
    * Removed all localization installations (i.e. foreign language support)
    * Disabled certain QuickTime extensions that were considered redundant, since other standalone media players were already handling files using these extensions independently
    * Utilized some Safari tweaks to speed up performance: changed network buffers to optimize a broadband connection, does not store favicons

    The result? Some very not bad load and I/O response times. :bigthumb:

    any built-in ethernet? AAUI port maybe?

    also, all data CDs should conform to the ISO 9660 standard; no CD can ever be HFS formatted

    well, here's what I'm running:

    Computer
    * 867 MHz Quicksilver G4 (Fall 2001, I'll explain why this sucks in a second)
    * 1.12 GB PC133(?) RAM
    * 1 x 300GB Maxtor HD as boot drive (50GB dedicated to an OS 9 partition for old games :big grin: )
    * 2 x 200GB Maxtor HDs as a 200GB RAID 1 array
    * OEM GeForce2 MX :mamoru:
    * original superdrive, aka Pioneer DVR-A03
    * OS X 10.4.5 (running .5 because there was a fuckup in .6 with disk attributes and ACLs, and I have a TON of shit from my raid migration backed up on older disk images... in short I won't be upgrading until I get all of the archived data moved back to the drives, since I don't trust apple's updates worth half an ass :madfawk: )


    Monitor(s)
    * Samsung SyncMaster 215tw -- fucking love this monitor, 21" widescreen, DVI / VGA / Composite / Component / S-vid in, HDCP compliant
    * 15" Sony LCD (old monitor, not currently connected)


    So there are two reasons this computer has cost me more money than it should've (though I still love it, it's been rock solid for the most part)

    Came with a 60GB IBM Deathstar drive, I stupidly bought a second one when I got the machine, before I knew they were failing early. so of course both of those died within 2-3 years or so. new drives have been solid, though.

    Other than that, the Fall 2001 Quicksilvers were the last motherboards that couldn't support large drives (>128GB) natively; had to buy a stupid PCI card to support large drives. My OEM video card (GeForce2 MX) is also the ONLY card from Apple that doesn't support screen resolutions above 1600px with an ADC --> DVI converter, so I'm running my screen on VGA out right now. It also is the only card to not support ADC --> VGA adapters, so I can't drive that second display. :mad: shittier still, the only card I can buy that will run in both OS X and OS 9 is a RADEON 9200, which is old as shit but is still $125 :wtf: either that or buy a piece of shit Rage card and take up another slot just for a 15" monitor :rant:


    but seriously, this machine has been great to me, still runs great for everything except hi-def movies and other stuff you'd expect a five year old machine to choke on. I'd like to see a 5-year-old PC do half the shit this one does... let alone at the same time :)

    I too still love my powermac. I have a pc that's just one year older and it's an old rickety shit box. My powermac still runs as good, better actually, than the day I bought it, but I do have some issues:

    1) It's too goddamn loud
    2) It's fine for email and shit but render times are ungodly slow, I feel cheated and lied to regarding PPC processors. I don't care what anybody says, pentium's blow ppc's away.
    3) I'm still rockin' the same og 60 gig drive, but I keep all, or most, of my important shit on an external drive.

    Other than that I :love: my mac
