View Full Version : For Sale PowerMAC g4 Quicksilver 640Mb RAM 800Mhz PPC

10th June 2013, 08:04
EDIT:This is the 800Mhz version "quicksilver", cant find out if it's dual 800Mhz or not. It has 771572kB usable memory. Does meminfo count video ram as well? i think its only supposed to have 640MB total RAM(128+256+256.

Sold locally last year!!

Working and currently running YellowDog Linux. Case is nice and clean, for those interested in apples:)
Confirmed working with MorpOS two years back.
You will have to find cd version of osx 10.4 if you want to run the official maximum 10.4.11. ( 10.5.x is possible, but maybe not on this particular beast, think only 733 and dual 800 can run 10.5.x)
-Check out LeopardAssist-

Shipping will be a *bleep* on this weighty beast.

Price for individual parts will be supplied upon interest.

...and for those wanting to comment on the background regarding vibrations and magnetizm: Nope, you are wrong :) and it's only for temp and spotify anyways...

IIRC, this unit is also in the MorphOS compatibility list, pending the graphics installed. If it is a NVidia, forget about it. Only ATI Radeons are supported.

Oh, and it can have up to 1.5Gb of SDRAM.

Check the full specifications in Every Mac. (http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/powermac_g4/specs/powermac_g4_800_dp_qs.html)

This one has ATI graphics, and yes, it can run with 1,5Gb RAM :)
Thanks rkauer ;)

I remember running MorphOS on it a few years ago, but i didn't like the butterflies :P heha

I MIGHT just have a stick or two of kingston 512MB SDRAM somewhere to juice up the deal.

Hello Kronuz,
is it a normal LCD monitor ?
Does the G4 accepts a normal USB keyboard and mouse ?

Hi. Sorry about the late reply.
The GPU supports lcd's, yes.
the g4 got 2x usb and 100mbit LAN. Not sure if the USB is 1.1 or 2.0.

Thanks for the offer, but the shipping alone will cost 56.05 Euro...minimum.
I would rather just keep it or give it away to a friend, if I can't get a buyer at a reasonable price.
