What a great list. So many options to choose from. Might be time to give MorphOS a try.

You can look at it as sticking it to the man by buying used though.  Apple won't get a cent.

Very nice list.

Off topic:

I'd rather pay Apple than spend my money on lame windows systems with badly-written BIOSes (which by chance can also run Linux) and windows-only included software, let alone paying the microsoft tax by buying a PC laptop.

Sorry to flame but

No, you're not.

@B00tdisk: hive-mind.  But in all seriousness, we're fully aware there are people out there who hate Apple to company and/or Apple hardware.  Doesn't need to be said all the time, or really at all as, on the whole, it adds nothing useful to discourse.

Great list!  I'm picking up a G5 2.7 this Friday :-)


EDIT: on the subject of Apple...I dislike Apple, but I'm pro-MorphOS.  If it requires Apple hardware to run the OS I like, then so be it.

I'm not in either "camp", if anything I'm stuck on 68k forever, but you've got to give credit to the MorphOS guys for having great presentation.

They even make the forum posts look nicer than usual.

I'm actually looking forward to putting MorphOS on this aluminum PowerBook that got dumped on me.  I played with Mac OSX on it just to see how it works and to support a few customers who are Mac-only.  That lasted a day.  Now when my colleagues say how I told them I don't like Apple and won't own an Apple device I can say it's an Amiga laptop.

So excluding discontinued products, it's two semi-interesting bits of hardware and a load of apple garbage. Sorry to flame but, I'm am a little bored of people poking apple in my face. Don't own, will NEVER own.


Apple hardware is some of the best available consumer computer hardware in the world. What they hell are you talking about?

*Cough*... Well, at least that's what the marketing says, so it must be true, eh?


@takemehomegrandma: Great list, thank you very much! Too bad my G5 is a Powermac 7.2, I hope it will be supported in the future...

Power Macintosh G4 Cube

OK, two more! :)

Power Macintosh G4 Cube



From Wikipedia: "The Power Mac G4 Cube was a small form factor Macintosh personal computer from Apple Inc. It was sold from 2000 to 2001. Its cube shape is reminiscent of the NeXTcube from NeXT, acquired by Apple in 1996. The machine was designed by Apple industrial designer Sir Jonathan Ive. The New York Museum of Modern Art holds a G4 Cube, along with its distinctive Harman Kardon transparent speakers, as part of its collection."

MorphOS runs on "the Cube", but it's not officially listed as supported by the MorphOS Team due to some HW features not being supported. Network can be made working with some tweaks, but the USB audio presents a problem (link).

Here is a list of the Cube machines, with links to the great "everymac.com" site with loads of additional, detailed information:

   
74. Power Macintosh G4 450 Cube, PowerMac5,1
75. Power Macintosh G4 500 Cube, PowerMac5,1

MorphOS is Amiga done right! :)

@tmhg

Just to note also:

MorphOS also supports the onboard (NEC) USB on the Powermac MDDs operating in high-speed usb 2.0 mode.
Apple has never got around to supported that (afaik), and OSX only operates the onboard NEC USB at USB 1.1 speeds.

:-)
Mac Mini G4 (1.5GHz, 64MB VRam, 1GB Ram): MorphOS 3.6
Powerbook 5.8 (15", 1.67GHz, 128MB VRam, 1GB Ram): MorphOS 3.8.

Windows-free since 2011-2014 (Damn you Netflix!)

I don't like Apple (the company) too much, too. But I think that makes it even more great that MorphOS runs on Apple hardware. Isn't there a better way to p*ss on Apple's leg than to wipe out OS X and install a "real OS" on that hardware? Plus, Apple doen't see a cent from purchasing used hardware.

For all you Apple haters: Free Apple hardware, install MorphOS!
