    difference between Dual boot and OS X Only???
    Ive been looking into buying a new G4 MDD and have noticed I can get a Dual 1.0 Ghz Dual Boot for 600 or a Dual 1.25 Ghz Osx boot only for 400 and Am
    really leaning towards the 1.25, but what is the difference between a Dual boot and OSX only boot???

    Dual Boot means the user has installed a second OS on a different partition, so it can boot into you choice of two separate operating systems.
    For a G4, it is probably OS X and some version of Linux.

    The way you have shown it the 1GHzDP is OS 9 and OS X, the 1.25GHzDP is OS X only. Go for the 1.25. Really OS 9, known as Classic, is finito!
