I\'m going to be using a Mac at work soon and decided I should go ahead and get a Mac for my home studio, just to expand my way of thinking a bit.
I think the G4 that I\'ll be getting is 700 mhz with 640 RAM and OS 9. I\'m buying this computer from a friend, so I\'m not exactly sure of everything. I\'m going to have him email me the whole list of stuff when it gets closer to actual purchase time.
Should I upgrade to OS X?
Should I get more RAM?
I was thinking about making this just a Protools rig, would that be a good thing? I was looking at the Digi001 or 002...but I\'m not sure if this one has a firewire port on it or not.
What other things should I upgrade, look into, or be wary of?
Thanks for any info!
