Check out this informative article: Mac.Ars: Getting the perfect used Mac.
It's nice to quickly see which PowerMacs have AGP, etc. People should really read stuff like this before buying a used Mac. As a switcher I was too scared of my inexperience to buy used but after hanging around here I see it's a great choice. You do pay a certain non-recoverable premium when you buy new.
Stuff like this is good to know:
The earliest entry-level G4 desktops ("Yikes!") were actually based around the motherboard from the blue G3. That means no AGP slot and poor memory bandwidth, among other things.

Actually in my experience they seem to like Apple although they are not crazy about it and most of them prefer Linux. Their readers are PC enthusiasts, which includes a lot of the Mac crowd, including some that own "the world's fastest PC".
