Now that the rebuild of the iBook is well underway (and a hearty thanks to those who helped out), I'm moving forward with my plans to reduce the number of Macs I have lying about. I've been thinking about which PPC unit to hold onto prior to the pending MacMini purchase, planned right now for late this year/early next. My question concerns my 7200/90. Since it holds more promise than the 5260, I'd like to know what the consensus is regarding an upgrade path. First, is it even really practical? How about a USB card? Would it be more cost effective to just purchase a used G3 unit, such as a B&W (feasibly, that's a possibility; I could purchase a stripped down unit, since I acquired four retired 10GB hard drives this weekend from a system admin friend for free)? Also, contrary to reports I've heard, is it true that some of the earlier versions of OS X can run on upgraded 7200s? This is all probably moot at this point, since the iBook has already taken precedent on my "to-do" list. Thoughts?
