    Today I picked up a Mac G4 from my College's Surplus store. The photography just cleared out their G4's for new iMacs. From what I can figure out from pulling stuff off and looking at it, I think I have a dual core processor, a ATI Rage 128 Pro graphics card, and a weird hradrive setup thatruns off of a PCI card and is non-ATA. I has four expansion slots and is in a case with the Graphit color scheme.The serial Number is XB0310LZJNX.

    this is my first mac, and for $95 dolalrs its not that bad of an investment, altough I was dissapointed to find it running OS 9 and not OSX. Anyway, any body know what I might have?

    here.
    That's a heckuva deal :bigthumb:

    I'm running a dual 500 G4. Over the years, the only thing I had really go wrong with it, was my onboard audio shit the bed. I fixed that with a USB iMic, and everything works fine again.

    I did pull out the old DVD-RAM drive long ago, and put in a Pioneer DVD-RW tho. :)

    Congrats!
