So... This currently leaves me owning rather a lot of computers:
- Windows 7 desktop PC
- An older PC currently running Linux that's hooked up to my TV and hasn't been used in a year or so.
- The 500Mhz iMac G4 I refurbished earlier this year - currently my bedroom computer but getting very little use. A bit slow and some issues with compatibility on some web sites.
- The 1.1ghz iBook G4 the MacBook is replacing. Still reasonably usable, apart from compatibility issues, just a little slow compared to modern machines.
I'm trying to decide whether to sell the iMac G4, the iBook G4, or possibly both, or keep both. Resale value is probably around £50-£75 for the iBook, a little less for the iMac. In terms of practicality I'd probably be better off keeping the iBook as my bedroom / spare computer and selling the iMac, but I really like the look of the iMac, it's just amazingly cool somehow. As an excuse to keep it, I'm wondering if it will become more of a collectable as time goes by. Anyone have any thoughts?
Finally, does anyone have any suggestions for fun free software for the MacBook? I've installed Oolite, maybe a couple more games and some utilities?
Later - just realised I bought a Macheist bundle ages ago that I mostly didn't use because the software was intel, not G4 - this included Scrivener and other stuff, now downloading it to see if it's worth using. The Scrivener key, at least, still works, so does Artboard.
