    $1000 is 66% more expensive...

A G4, wont ever do that.
    Yes, new machines will do more faster but these machines should still have plenty of life in them. Not everyone needs to have brand new everything, there is nothing wrong with recycling electronics if everything is being disclosed.

    AND I still don't get the desire to run WIN on a MAC (No need to explain). If I purchase a MAC it's to run OS X, screw windows, these are much more affordable ways to run WIN... And then there is always emulation.

    Anyway, back to my question above, what did you intend to use for payment if not PayPal? If you haven't already, go ahead and setup your PayPal account and get it verified. I'm probably going to purchase one but I'll only do it if I can protect my $$$$$.

    I've signed up for a paypal account. I'm gonna get my checkbook to verify my account and what not. It'll be another week or so before I get the G4s. I'll keep you posted and PM you my email address

    Thanks again Chris,
