It’s this popular Mac’s 21st....

The Cube

I’m still in original owner. $900 on clearance at compUSA, Man, I feel old. It’s upgraded to an 800 Mhz CPU and newer GPU. I’ve also got a couple of others that are not upgraded much aside from the SSD. I’ve got a spare GeForce GPU, I just haven’t gotten around to putting it in one yet.

When I have a little cash I’ll buy one or two more.

You are making me feel REAL old.

The Cubes have all aged gracefully here smiling smiley Still probably the owner of the fastest Cube ever, prototype dual processor card & a NVidia GeForce3 shoehorned into one of mine.





Good Luck!

One Cube here, a Radeon upgrade GPU that needs new caps, a GeForce 2 yet to be installed, and an iSub.

At the very least, I should swap in an SSD.

No doubt it needs an adapter of some nature.

I should do the same to my ILamp.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

A TAM....one day....

A guy on eBay hacks dual processor cards for the Cube. May not be the fastest on the Block much longer.

Exactly ONE. :-) But a full pack of labels too.

I was a victim of downsizing a few years ago, and I'm pretty sure my stash of old floppies didn't make the cut.
Glad yours did.

We have a Del Webb retirement community about 15 minutes away from the OWC headquarters, and they had an active computer group of retirees there a few years ago and a couple of them have donated their vintage collection to our vintage collection that needs to become a museum at some point here at OWC. One of them that came in about 6 months ago had tons of old 5-1/4 floppies in it, lots and lots of 1978-79-80 Elephant Systems, Verbatim, Maxell discs & sleeves in there.

Always loved this logo.

I think he went all the way up to 800 MHz. I know there are people to get them up to 1000.

I think the hacked versions use the version of the G4 that generate less heat and use less power.

OWC should sell cubes for $3000 apiece and throw in a free CPU upgrade.

I'm going to have to seek some of this out and see what's going on with the modding community on those then for sure. Mine is probably not as quick as that anymore. It held the title for a while at least ;)

Speaking of floppy; I used to have a clipper do dad that cut a square hole near the edge so you could turn a single sided floppy into a 2 sided one. Then I had the system disk on one side and Appleworks on the other for my Apple II SE.

Funny, my friend's dad brought a prototype item home with this logo when i was a kid. What is the company's name and address on the back?
