I could be wrong, but I think it did not sell as well as they wanted it to.

yeah i'm pretty sure there was nothing wrong with it, other than lack of upgradability.

Yes I have found out the stuff when release about lack of upgradability.
That is fine. Now as I under stand it this machine is either a 450 or 500.
How much would that go for in the States.
Here in Hong Kong I believe the price being asked is about US$900 with a screen. Does this sound expensive ?
Thanks

The main reason Apple stopped making the Cube is that they were too expensive, considering that the G4 towers were not too much more & had more power, expansion bays, etc. There weren't any build-quality issues. Yes, they were either 450 or 500mHz. US$900 w/ a good, fairly new screen seems pretty fair.

That said, I have a 450mHz cube, and I think it's great. If you do decide to get it, I can refer you to a really great site for Cubes; it's got a LOT of technical info and tips on upgrades. The upgrade options are on par w/ what's available for the 450mHz G4 towers, if a little more expensive.
