ie, how fast a processor do i need? Should I choose a g3? g4? intel processors? how much memory do i need? etc.
I dont need usb 2.0, i dont need pc card slot, just wireless and a cdrom drive.
Mainly my concern is to not pick up something that is dog slow. I guess i'd like it to be able to run the latest OS (is that possible on older macs?)
I dont know diddly about macs by the way. I"m a pc guy all the way (and will remains so ;) but I want to experiment with macs a bit to prepare for a school-related project that will involve some macs.
