Originally known as "The New iMac" the iMac G4 was created to replace the iMac G3 as Apple's all-in-one desktop computer. The G4 is easily recognizable by its swiveling monitor mounted above the hemispherical computer. Steve Jobs quoted it as being "a design that will last till the next decade."

I really like the LaCie external DVD drives. They're tough, well built, and reliable.

I've used one with LightScibe for years. This will also move to your next computer.

If you go that route (and I would) get the firewire model so you can load operating systems with it. Ralph


Agreed about the firewire. Also the LightScribe allows you to write/burn professional looking labels on your disks.

You can use any IDE 5.25" Optical Drive, even a DVD Burning SuperDrive up to 24x, and get one for about $30-60

But I have been told it must be firewire to use as a boot drive or to wipe the hard drive.
