I bought my G4 some weeks ago.
Before that I was on a PowerCenterPro Mac-clone with a 604e/240Mhz processor.
When I bought the clone four years ago it was one of the fastest.
It was nearly as expensive as the G4, now it“s of no value
The rapid decrease of hardware“s value is a real pain.
G Fizzy 4 hizzy(G4 400 mHz)
A terrible 10 gb hard drive.
Well since my monitor is not the lovly 22 in studio display yet, I will not speak on it.
Weak external Que CD-RW.
DVD internal, no zip, whats the point of a zip any way, my files are way too big.
I have a 8 track reciever connected to my G fizzy, and I tell ya, the old radio really bump out that sound like it should be, I have house rockin, especially at restarts, DONGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!
I bought my computer when they first came out, now it's time my G fizzy has alittle company, another G fizzy, most likly a dual processor when the newer models roll out and a Titanium for my road trips.
I'll get OS X as soon as all my design apps are available for it, till then still OS 9.1
Sorry about the long post, I haven't posted in a while, damn it feels good to be home.
Has anyone ever worked on a G4 with max amount of memory installed? I wonder how it runs, I'm sure it's damn good, maybe I'll put a gig in my next CPU. Memory is cheap now, might skyrocket then, or worse change so that the current memory is invalid in future systems. I need to get my dual monitor setup together, makes work flow a breeze, slide stuff from one screen to the other., and one can be Windows gamma and the other Mac.
Is there any truth to what i heard about a G4 not being able to reconize a internal hardrive over 30 gb? Thats what i was told, or can partitions settle this issue? I'm about to purchase 2 hardrives, an IDE internal, and a firewire external for carriying things here and there and as my scratch disk for various apps, mostly PS.
I love my hockey puck of a mouse, I hate this little @#$ keyboard though. I'll upgrade to the new attachments later, most likly the keyboard. Is it just me or does it seem as if the puck makes designing a breeze, I have reached the point where I twist it to do curve unknowingly aware that I do it. It works great for me when it's clean.

If your like me who preferes the original chuncky Apple Extended II Keyboard then may be you should invest in a USB to ADB adapter plus it works with Quark's ADB dongle. Costs about £40 plus tax
Someone at MacMall told me that there is a chance anything over 40gig will not show, like 38gig or something will show. I was told this when i ordered some memory and was considering a new hard drive. For now my slow @#% Que CD-RW will do for backing up, but it is a pain if you do intense work like me. Is it just me or do 300dpi Photoshop files seem to average around 200mb, and that is not what a super production could be. A super production is a design for print where I try to create the cleanest clearest most appealing designs, they normally are over 200mb. I fill my hard drive within a week easy, a few minutes if I need to do video. UltraNEO I rather stick with the usb keyboared, bad enough I have this ugly @#% monitor making my setup look cheap.
