    You wouldn't be able to run most of the app's anyway as they've now mostly gone intel, they will not run on G4 architecture. I know your mac choice will certainly be cost driven, but that mac is two generations out of date now.

    You cant even get the Mac App Store on a G4 due to Apple's update structure.

    ApolloA might have an idea, but as far I know it's not doable. I think if you have a 867MHz or better you can put 10.5 on it, but on that age machine I prefer 10.4.11, personal opinion.
