G4 Cube Appreciation Thread



I finally managed to get a Cube. It is now the server for my house. I'm running MacOS X Server 10.4.6. What a great machine. It was WAY overpriced for it's time but it's still quite usable. I'm using it as a server because it's virtually silent. Anyone else have one?

I just bought an external firewire DVDRW drive for it - didn't want to hassle with getting a compatible internal drive. But I am getting a hard drive and found this video which shows the awesome engineering of the machine.

I would love to get one of these for super cheap or free and replace my B&W G3 server.

I thought they had heating problems and problems with the glue on the stand.

The only problems I recall were the cracks in the thick plastic enclosure. The one I got is fine.

Only eBay unless you can find one elsewhere used.
