Finally I did it – I bought G4 Cube for myself! $250 (plus shipping) for PowerPC G4 450 MHz system is a little bit expensive, but it’s CUBE:

It even has “cracks” (as probably all G4 cubes ;)

Of course I put Debian GNU/Linux on it and removed MacOS 9.2 that was preinstalled there.

One strange (for me) thing about G4 Cube is its power button that is not a button at all…

Now I can measure power usage of my electric devices, and as we can se Cube eats only 30 watts (actually it goes between 25 and 45 watts):

Probably I will use this G4 Cube in my home “grid” network for distributed computing…

Updated: Cube became black!
