Ok, that was an example of a sarcastic comment. Seeing as that laptop is pretty old, I thought it would amuse you if I found the most expensive parts out there and suggested they were the parts inside.

I am sorry I failed to get my point across.

Just dug out my old PowerPC G4 (533MHz Digital Audio edition) and thought maybe some of you guys here might be interested in seeing a 10 years old (as of this year) pre-Intel Mac? :P The identifier says it was made in Ireland in 2001.





Upgraded Spec (all upgrades done by me )

533MHz PowerPC G4 CPU
1GB 133MHz SDRAM
NVIDIA Geforce FX2 /w 32MB VRAM (considering an upgrade for this, not sure about finding 10.4.11 drivers though.)
130GB Super-IDE Disk Drive
Mac OS 10.4.11 Tiger

post your oldies!
