    buying new mac, need advice
    my powerbook recently died and i thought that since its already really messed up, i might as well sell it in parts and buy a new mac. i dont need anything fancy, i like to watch HD movies, use photoshop, and play an occasional game or two. basically i want a decent powerpc(cant afford intel) desktop that has 128mb of vram and can handle the basic things. ive been looking at the imac g5's on ebay and they look pretty decent for the price. i have about 500 dollars to spend, please recommend me something

    Are these games that you are playing for Windows or for Mac?

    If it's for Windows then you won't be able to play them since G4 and G5s won't run boot camp.

    There is always a Mac Mini?
