Default RAM for a mac

No actually their 400MHZ is sufficient to run OS 10.4. You see, it's not RAM and CPU eaten alive by Windows. Something Bill Gates forgot to do

Right timing my friend


Again, OS 10.x series are not that demanding. A G3 would equal to around a Celeron 600MHZ and an AMD Duron 550-633MHZ
