Would a iMac G4 be worth around $300 on ebay for like a iTunes jukebox and a web browser and stuff is it worth it? Also did Apple say that 10.5 will run on ppc? Another question does anybody know if it can run M$ Virtual PC ok?

EDIT: What about a g4 cube?

Not sure what kind of G4 you are looking at.

I had a Dual G4-533 with 1gb ram, that I used to use as a server and shared my iTunes with. It worked great. Running 10.4.5

I would assume 10.5 will support the G4, but since it isn't released, that's only speculation.

I also have an iBook G4 1.2ghz which runs MS Virtual PC 7. It's slow but it does work.

might as well spend a few hundred more and get a Mac mini. the G4 cube does make very nice collectors item though
