Lovely machine. I love just about all the Power Mac G3 (blue and white) onward, even the G5 and Intel Mac Pros up to the trashcan. Not wild about the cube though...

My favourite has to be the G4 Quicksilver and MDD.

Octane  1x 400Mhz R12k, 1Gb, V8, 6.5.30m (silent fans)
O2 + 1600SW 300Mhz R12K (R10K upgrade mod),  384Mb, 6.5.30m (silent fans)

The MDD is absolutely beautiful! (Definitely my favourite of the G4's)

However, it was the G4 Sawtooth that first attracted me to Apple, I really didn't take any notice of them up until they released that machine!

This video takes quick look at the insides of a Power Mac G4 with Mirror Doors and compares it to the G4 Sawtooth, and also uncovers the mystery as to how these machines are able to operate without their system batteries.
