Man I remember when the Cube came out.. I saw one on display at an Apple store with 23 inch Cinema display.  Man I wanted one badly.  But wayyyy too much money.  Definitely want one for my collection.  Probably not too expensive now.

My wife and I purchased the G4 cube, monitor, as well as enhanced sound package.  It’s primary  purchase was using it as a music server and some games.  My wife was working with Apple II e’s and very early Mac’s at the time.

Over time I had to replace a failing hard drive.

I retired it last week as I couldn’t put a modern browser on it.  The last few years I used it for only music.

Retire means I’m packing it up to put in a dust proof container and placed in storage.

Not looking to get rid of it but will obviously will someday.

Not really vintage but it has served a long and happy life.
