Subject:That's weird...

I remember seeing NeXTcube computers on their initial release in the 1990s, but somehow never heard of the Power Mac G4 Cube computers of 2001-ish.

Very cool looking and high spec in their day, but quite slow by today's standards, of course. Seems odd they somehow escaped my notice. Apparently there are people gutting them and building modern Mac Minis into the casings, just for the looks...

I have a working one in my office. Complete system, even got the original system disks for OS 9.2. Currently runs 10.5.8, 640Mb RAM.

I get it down off the top shelf once every couple of years just to make sure it still works. A bit of a collector's piece :-)

Definitely - the prices are a little silly, but not surprising considering their rarity in the UK.

A LOT nicer looking than the current high-end cylinder thingy, which to me looks like a naff plastic subwoofer.
