Question about Apple Power Mac G5 Desktop
It has 266 ,a OS 9, I want to update it a bit so it runs faster but I have no Idea where to start! i have on ly had a pc. I have a brand new laptop i am researching this on which is my "baby" but would like the mac to be doing my file sharing/downloading/storing and then somehow make a network for them to share with each other? Possible? Where would I start finding the specs for my mac? Keep in mind someone gave this to me & I have never touched a mac since my apple 2+ as a child! Please any ideas help appreciated!
No, it is not worth putting money into. I buy eMacs, G4 towers, iMacs in this area (Seattle,WA) all the time for $30.00 or less. They have faster processors and on-board USB which is a definite upgrade from what you have.

You can find detailed specs for your baby here:
Best upgrade is to add as much RAM memory as possible.
Is it worth it? You have to decide that for yourself. I have a lime green iBook 466 MHz that I dearly love, but I don't use it any more. Replacement parts have become too expensive. You can buy a used PowerMac G4 for under $300, and a new Mac mini for $600. It's pretty hard to justify the cost of expensive old RAM chips or defunct batteries.
