If anything killed the G4 Cube, it was the IT crash
and not the tiny cosmetic
cracks that I'm right now staring at on the side of the sleekest, quietest computer I ever owned.
You see, this machine was only purchasable by people with money to burn
. It was more costly than their low end model, and too slow in comparison to their only-slightly-more-expensive tower computers. After all, a G4 450 can't really stand up to a newer model G4 733 (with 2MB backside cache
), which is now Apple
's lowest end tower computer.
