Just wondering if we should get another iMac for the action room. I'm planning to come & fix up pinky so he works a bit faster, but we could probably use another one with a bit more power. There's a G4 coming up on eBay tomorrow which is in Dalkeith so I could go & collect it instead of paying postage. Will probably go for less than £100. Comes with keyboard, mouse, speakers.
I could set it up with Photoshop & Open Office & shit. Would run faster than those old G3s and hopefully be more reliable than the woeful range of PCs we've been trying to utilize in there. Will also look a lot prettier
I can't guarantee it'll work forever but if if breaks I'll do my best to get it working again. I reckon this will be (up to) £100 well spent from the BTS budget as it will be a decent working machine that will be of ongoing use in the action room. And, like the two G3s, it should be fairly dependable which is what we need at the moment.
Google 'iMac G4' if you want to see what they look like.
