    Nope...those disks are model specific.

    What exactly do you mean by "Mac G4"? iMac? PowerMac?

    Sounds like a real bad deal.. the kinda thing I pick up for free. If I was you I would look for a G5....machine.

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    In the year 2012, I would not take a G4 machine of any sort even if you gave it to me for free. Too old, to expensive to get running to specs, obsolete, unable to use modern software ... the list just goes on and on.

    Others with limited needs might find a G4 perfectly acceptable, but I wouldn't even use one as a word processor at this point.

    If this is an iMac he's looking for, it could be the aesthetics he wants. Thats why i'm looking for one. Keep getting outbid...lol
