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.
