Hardware and software.  I bought a high end sound board with the 
understanding I'd be able to move it to the G4/450 when I retired it 
from being my main system.  Nice theory, but it didn't work to well 
in reality, plus I was unable to move the copy of Bias Peak that was 
on the 8500/180.

The crazy thing is the G4 has been sitting unused under my desk for 4 
years, I really need to put it into storage.

I still use my PowerBook 540c occasionally.  The 540c was purchased 
used to replace a 520c with a dead backlight.  The 520c was purchased 
new and was my first Mac.
