    finally willing to invest in one of these imac g5 all in one computers where the mac is built into the monitor to take to the amiga club.
    Which is the nicest one that you all support?
    model # to go shopping for?
    will their bee a need for upfront repairs or battery replacements?

    thanks

    iMac 20" iSight is the one to get.

    Upgrade it to 2GB of RAM and put a SSD in. Very nice all-round machine for MorphOS.

    Is this okay?

    Vintage Apple iMac G5 20-inch A1076 Mac OS X 2 GHz 2 GB RAM WIFI+BT

    Total bundle includes iMac G5 20’ (non-iSight) with Apple wired keyboard and Microsoft Laser Mouse 6000, 2 games (LEGO Indiana jones and three pack game consisting of The incredibles, Cars and Ratatouille), lastly the power cord as well (Generic replacement). The iMac has been fully tested and specs are, 2.0ghz G5 processor, 128MB ATI dedicated graphics, 370GB Hitachi HDD, 2GB of DDR RAM, WiFi and Bluetooth, dvd drive and FireWire as well. The iMac has been reset with a new user under the ID “iMac G5 20’ 2.0ghz” with no password. Please keep in mind this is a vintage computer it has been fully tested to be working but will have scuffs and small cracking or chips in plastic frame. It is missing the plastic piece that is adhered into the bottom of iMac stand. Overall it’s very clean and in good condition. Thanks for looking!

    > Upgrade it to 2GB of RAM

    Not exactly possible. 0.5 GiB are soldered onboard, there is one slot and there're no 1.5 GiB modules. I'd recommend at least 2.5 GiB total for MorphOS use, or 4.5 GiB total for additional Linux use.

    found your boot instructions but the CD keeps spitting out.
    the CD tests good in linux which is how i burned it
    do you have to burn it a certain way?
