"The G4 Cube"

As with every Apple Mac on the planet, the G4 Cube looks 'the dogs dangly bits'. In other words- It looks BEAUTIFUL. You cannot beat the Cube when it comes to beauty, because it simply p*sses all over its opponents. It's compact, sexy and is still kitted with a satisfactory PowerPC G4 proccessor which is more than fast enough for every day tasks such as e-mail, web browsing and playing the latest computer games.
Although the Cube has been out for some time now, you can upgrade basically everything in the Cube... Like the graphics card, the memory, the hard drive, etc. SO you can go from the normal 400 mHz G4 that you get as standard, to a gob smacking 1.25 gHz... Which is much, much, much, much more than the average computer-user needs.
Overall, the Cube is great. I love it, and I think future users of the wonder-machine will too. I would reccomend it to experienced Mac users rather than 'newbies', the reason being that you can only pick up second hand models nowadays and upgrading the machine can be pricey.
