TRADE: WINTEL for PowerMac G4/5



I have a project requiring me to develop for/on OSX and I am in need of a G4 or G5 box.
I had originally intended to develop the app in Windows in RealBasic and test it on my trusty

Now I have a contract but no $$$ to purchase another box to complete it.

  • CDRW Drive
  • Internal Zip Drive (if you opt for 2 x 20 GB Hard Drive configuration)
  • 3.5" Floppy Drive
  • Speakers w/Subwoffer
  • Keyboard and Mouse
  • 15" Mitsubishi Diamondscan 15VX Monitor or better (depending on your trade)
  • Currently has Windows 2000 SP4 and Office 2000 SP1 installed but previously ran Mandrake Linux
  • Mid Tower case with front USB access
  • Includes system restore CDs
What I Need
  • Desktop G4 or G5
  • One or more processors 800MHz or better
  • AGP Graphics
  • 40GB or Better IDE Hard Drive
  • Internal CD, DVD or CDRW Drive
  • Installed or Integrated FireWire
  • Installed or Integrated Ethernet
  • OSX installed (OS9 not required)
  • Keyboard, Mouse and Monitor of some sort
  • No eMacs
