    So I am in need of a mac for developing purposes and on ebay i see this barely $400 mac with decent specs. Any reason why so cheap? Its APPLE. IT HAS BUTTERFLIES AND RAINBOW INSIDES. Linky

    Well I don't know much about macs (or anything apple) but i thinks it's a powerpc mac. Not recent intel x86 ones.
    If that is the case you won't be able to use Mac OS 10.6 and beyond on it.

    Yeah mkoo beat me to it. Since its running a PPC processor it won't go past the latest Leopard which I believe is 10.5.8.
