May be picking one up. How are these working out for people? I hear they a particularily noisy.

Any thoughts or advice?

I own a DP867 and am quite pleased with it. This is my first Apple computer and I have no big complaints. There does seem to be a noise issue with the first generation of the MDD Powermac's. Apple currently has a power supply replacement offer going where they will send you a new power supply and system fan if your current system is too loud. You do need to pay the $20 for shipping though. I already ordered my replacement kit.

Other than the noise this is great machine. You can't go wrong with dual processors. I would rather have my dual 867MHz than one of the new 1GHz single processor machines.

Noisy, fast, excellent value for money - there is a fan kit coming from Apple to fix the former - it's been the best selling entry tower we've ever provided - superb value for money :D
I guess Apple figured that out since they now only offer a single at the entry point :rolleyes:

I love my DP867! I have BTOed it to a ATi Radeon 9000 and a SuperDrive. I don't know whyu everyone complains so much about the noise.... it's not that bad.

I love mine, even with the noise.

I worked with all kinds of computers, always had a preference for the Mac at home, and while the previous Macs made me happy back then, this one makes me ECSTATIC.

1) Gee, and I thought no one cared!

2) Had my ups and downs. As usual.

3) A place where I mostly had to deal with
Cat3 and Cat5. Both were responsible for
me being off the net for a while, until I had
Cat5 all over the place, while Cat3 (sort of)


4) Mostly cat2of3

5) Damn tootin' fast but not as fast as 2 x 2 G4/867
