I would like to get into something more than my 180MHz PowerBook 3400 and am wondering: What would be the CHEAPEST way to get into a G4 Mac? Would a G3 Blue&White (My favorite look) with a G4 upgrade be cheap? Would a stock G4 400 or so work for everyday use and be on the low end?
Something to consider is: Use of modern large hard drives; will an additional card be needed?
RAM: With 1GB the standard these days, DDR2 really cheap and older ram pretty expensive, would it make sense to buy a newer machine that can take newer RAM? Are there some kind of 'ram adapters' that allow newer ram in older machines like there were in the old days?
I haven't done a lot of research on it yet but have realized my 17" 1.67 GHz G4 PowerBook ($800 to 1000 on eBay) is just a budgetary dream at this point :^(
