I am looking to get a power mac in a few week and i was wondering what i should be looking for with the ppc processors. Are there major issues with them? I have 2 desktop hard drives that will fit the computer and i was wondering how many bays that the computer has? My last question is will an ibook g4 tiger disk work on this computer when i installing the OS cause my neighbor had one and she said that she was able to get hers to work using her ibook disk and i was thinking that would be helpful if it would work cause i have one.

Overall not really...but it would help to have more info on what exact model Powermac G4 we are talking about...there were LOTS of different models.

Thanks for that info.

The Mirror Drive Door Powermac G4:

- can support up to 4 internal hard drives
- was noisier that previous Powermac's due to a lot of fans
- had a different (compared to previous Powermac G4's) more expensive power supply
