    Keeping the price at or below $2500, can anybody recommend a good Mac web server? The only minimum requirement I have is 1 GB of RAM, pretty much anything else goes. Of course OS X too but that's a given :rolleyes:

    ha! haha! haha! :rofl: :rofl: hahaha :rofl: ha :rofl: haha

    oooooooohhh that hurts my sides...

    well, try this at the apple store (http://store.apple.com). Click on the lowest G4 tower model and customize from there:
    • 800MHz PowerPC G4
    1GB SDRAM - 2 DIMMs
    2x80GB Ultra ATA drive
    • CD-RW drive
    • ATI Radeon 7500 dual
    • Apple Pro Keyboard - U.S. English
    • Mac OS - U.S. English
    I didn't include a monitor; I think the new macs use the same video out as a PC so u can use an old one.

    And leave it at that. It'll be $2399. But of course its a relatively slow processor compared to the full-on web sever

    don't get the 800MHz G4 tower. it's a stripped down G4 with none of that wonderful L3 DDR cache. the 933 is the cheapest one with 2MB DDR L3. the 933 + 1GB of RAM is $2750 through the apple store online. or you could get the base model for $2300 and get generic RAM and save a couple hundred.

    the other option is apple's 1U server, the XServe. the lower end XServe is $3000. it has a 1GHz G4 with 2MB DDR L3. to upgrade it to 1GB of RAM through the apple store is $600, total of $3600. the XServes use DDR system memory though, the regular towers use SDRAM.

    the XServe comes with a server version of OS X and an unlimited user license. the regular towers come with "regular" OS X. i'm not sure what the difference is to be honest.

    oh yeah, hi filburt! :wave: :p

    Unfortunately the price limit is fixed (it's for the goverment :(). If Macs were cheaper then I'd get one as the server but only the iBook and iMacs are cheap. :(

    Will look into getting the 933 with less RAM then upgrading it. :) Does it use DDR, SDRAM (PC133), or whatT?

    And hi, Jake :p

    Yes, that's pretty good. The graphics can always bee updated later but the 7500 is fine.
