There is a MacG4 1.4 Mhz DP, 1 Gig ram, 120 Gig HD, Geforce 4 video card, Keybd, Mouse, 17" Apple LCD monitor, no bluetooth, no boxes. for $2700.

I will have to dump my G4 867 DP and one of my 17 LCD monitors
I was wondering would it be worth it for the speed bump.
I am looking for opinions

Other than the Mhz, there is the 2meg of L3 chache than can make a big dif, depending of what you do with the computer.

But why do you want to get rid of your screen? Dual screen is a must, I cant understand how someone could work with anything smaller than 19"...

Not a bad deal, not amazing either.

That model doesn't boot Mac OS 9, if that is a concern to you.

I have two 17" LCD screens now. A Sony with DVI input and Neovo with VGA inputs I would keep the Sony and sell the Neovo.
I have moved away from OS 9 software if it won't boot in OS 9 classic I don't run it. and that has only been a couple of games.
I have to make a up my mind by noon tomorrow.
I need INPUT.

I think that they key parts of the offer are the tower & the LCD --> are they worth $2400-$2500 or so?? RAM is cheap. HDs are pretty affordable as well. Not much of a tower cat these days... is this good??
