I just impulse bought a Mac Mini G4 - the 1.50ghz with the 64mb Radeon card.
Anyway, I'm going to take it apart and upgrade the hard drive, RAM, replace the coin battery cell, and then plan to configure it for triple boot - OSX/MorphOS/Gentoo.
I also plan to do some fun experiments in each of the OSes. I'm considering blogging this, if people think it'd be useful, but don't want to invest the time if nobody cares. Let me know if you think this would be of interest.
Stop with change the hard drive, I did with my first Mac Mini G4 I upgraded to SSD and the Mac Mini took the crazy because the Mac boot sometime doesn't recognize the hard disk, and I have change the drive to start the computer, the other upgrades like button cell and RAM work fine, but he hard disk not.
