In the MDD models, you can have 4 internal drives all off the same ATA chain - the first two will run at ATA/100 standards, but the other two will run at ATA/66 standards (unless, of course you add a ATA/100-133 PCI controller card).I had 4 drives in my older quicksilver G4 but I had to run 2 of them from a PCI ATA controller card. Only 2 drives work off the mother board ATA bus.
No. Only room for one cd-rom/dvd-rom.Two internal hard drive bays and two internal bays for cd-rom/dvd-rom/etc ?
if you are using the machine for personal use then i recommend you save your money and go with a new G4. i highly doubt you would notice any difference in speed and you could buy yourself a kickass monitor with the money you save.I've been researching macs for awhile now for personal use and I'm leaning towards the G5.
