Hi, I've been looking into buying me a G4 PM lately, and I've found a (pretty) good candidate: The Powermac Cube. I just have some questions before I Buy it.
1.The spec sheet states that the graphics card is installed in a dedicated AGP 2X Slot... do you know if this card can be replaced w/ a slightly better one? (maybe the original 32MB Radeon?)
2. Is it worth to go for a proc. upgrade on these machines or should I buy a newer PM? I was thinking a PowerForce47 single 1.8GHz or Dual 1.5GHz. Is it very difficult to do the upgrade? (ive only worked on Powerbooks,iBooks and PC's)
I know I would be better off with a newer G4 but I have limited desk space and really like the cube.So if performance (w/upgrades) would be similar to a newer PM, i'd go for it. Can you tell me what it would compare to once it's upgraded? (1.8 Ghz G4 or dual 1.5 ghz G4, -which is better?-, and with 1.5GB RAM and maybe an 80GB HD-they are IDE 3.5" HD's, right? ;))
