    One second, i'm just going to ask my parents for an Apple iMac G4 for Christmas, just so I can be proud of myself for owning an old computer. (and look for more old computers so the process can repeat itself)

    I don't know if you overly care, but you can use a modern web browser on that thing! Its called TenFourFox. It is based on the latest Mozzilla Firefox and it is designed for Power PC G3, G4, and G5 chips! I have a PowerMac G4 (500Mhz) and it is pretty speedy despite my limeted cpu.

    I wish I could get one of these with 2019 specs and screen resolution of at least 1080p , have anybody gutted it and put in modern Mac parts to have it run MacOS Sierra in 1080p with 8 gig of ram or something.

    I got one of these a few weeks ago for $20. Can't do much with it other than watch DVD's and listen to music. It's just so cool to look at, like a piece of art.

    For your kind information the first iMac with built in camera came in 2005 which is actually a refresh of iMac G5 and not G4.

    Excellent video. I agree there’s not much modern computing tasks you can do with these older PowerPC computers, but they’re fun to collect on design and engineering alone, like how much I drool over the G4 cube.

    This computer was prominently featured in a Mexican telenovela "Teresa" (2010). They should've listed it as a cast member:
