I suppose ...

If any large packages are received, the postman can drop down the right-side panel.

or it could be a gigabit enet

or it could be a gigabit enet or digital audio model. 4 of the G4 towers were graphite, though the latter 2 models were sawtooth-based.

also look at that yellowing. that's the onlything keeping me from doning this. anybody know of something that will slow down or stop the yellowing procedure?

or, I wonder if somebody could do this to a compact mac. the monitor hole could be for packages, with a sign abov "no packages larger than 9" diagonal" and the floppy slot could be for envelopes. now, the only question is how to get the mail out. but who cares about getting it out?

It's not a yikes! or sawtooth

It's not a yikes! or sawtooth, the front button was different than that on the early models such as the Yikes! or Sawtooth. It has to be either a gigabit or higher.

look at the front Power butto

look at the front Power button while the sawtooth it off. the one in the picture has a white power symbol, the sawtooth as a clear one that the light shines through. the light shines around the one in the picturejust like a DA that we have at work.
