    opinions on a G5 Dual 2.0
    I have a chance to pick up a used one of these.
    Are they a reliable machine?
    Any known "bugs" I should be aware of before I buy?

    Thanks

    No problems at all and you'll have a very rapid machine.

    I'd go for it :black:

    I am running the 2.3 GHz version of these machines, and I love it. Quiet, powerful and an excellent performer all around. I would recommend it.

    I would ensure that you have at least 1 GB of RAM with this machine - it would be a shame to not give the CPU enough memory to really run free.

    A steal! Clearly I am biased, but I would go for it.
