It looks like I may be in a position to upgrade to either a low end G4 iMac 700, with combo drive or a low end G4 Power Mac DP 867. What would be a better investment in the long run? The G4 has a 60GB HD, the iMac has a 40GB HD. I am not a 'professional user', but do like the option of being able to add "stuff" to the Mac.

I hate to give advise because I have this Power thing when it come's to Mac's.<br>The G4 Power Mac DP 867 can be expanded and will make your toes curl.<br>There is not to much you can do with an iMac although it is a great computer.<br>Get the G4 Power Mac DP 867 and tell them Swatcat set you<br><br>
get the 867 tower... if you have enough money to buy a monitor to go with it (if you don't already have one). Buy from macmall.com or maczone.com to get FREE RAM upgrade to run Jaguar. The advantages to the tower are numerous... faster video card, faster i/o, faster bus speed, faster processor, faster hard drive and more. Plus, if something goes wrong with the monitor with the tower, you can just replace the monitor with a cheap one, but if the iMac flat screen goes on the fritz, you lose the whole computer until it's fixed. Plus, you can get a larger monitor for the tower if you want to.<br><br><br>Visit me here!
