So, I have got to say, this computer is very nice and fast! Here are some things I have noticed so far in tonight's use:

Pros:
-Youtube is pretty quick
-Leopard is pretty quick
-Graphics Intensive Applications such as Google Earth run decently
-Performing normal tasks such as web browsing, email, and the like are very speedy

Cons:
-Miss out on new OS X features that I use daily on my MBP
-Lack of support for new programs that I use daily on my MBP my most missed program being Skype, I know I could probably get an older one but I like the new one
-Cannot run steam so no Counterstrike, Team Fortress, and the like
-No App Store

Conclusion:
Overall this is a superb computer for normal tasks and once Logic Studio 8 finishes installing I am sure that this thing will run that so well and Logic is mainly what I purchased it for anyway.

So on to the specs:
Quad 2.5GHz G5
8GB DDR2 RAM
Quadro FX 4500 with 512MB onboard RAM
500GB SATA HDD
SuperDrive
OS X Leopard 10.5.8
