    what to look for on used g5 powermac
    I've been searching the craigslist ads for a g5 tower. Is there any prog that I can run on site to do a quick system test?? I know the g5's are out dated But The ads I'm seeing are 4-500 for a dual 2.0-2.5. I'm trying to trade some of my stuff + cash for it.

    No but make sure when you see a machine the original system install discs come with it as disc one contains Apple Hardware Test which checks out logic board, memory, hard drive, modems, graphics etc.

    Do not buy a liquid cooled model as these have had some major problems with leaks, and duck the original 1.6/1.8GHz single processor models. If the readies run to it look for what is known as a late 2005 Dual Core in 2GHz, 2.3GHz and 2.5GHz. These models run faster DDR2 memory and come with PCIE slots and faster PCIE graphic cards.
