There was a thread started for this but not many chimed in. I believe my drummer has one of these. The model with everything, (speakers, guts, cd drive) inside themonitor...plug the keyboard into it, the mouse into the keyboard....way cool! I know nothing about Macs other than what he showed me he had been doing with his. Using ProTools and recording himself and several tracks of instruments. My question is if I was to get one of these computers along with one of the multi line input hardware items like the presonus firebox or something from E-MU (maybe?). Could I plug in myself, the guitarist, drummer, and singer all at one time as we practice to record our sessions? Would this machine be up to task to make a quality demo cd from home? I have very low budget for all of it. However I'm finding these G3's on the net going for $100!!! Add a firewire interface and presto right? Any info anyone can give me would be great. Nobody around me has Macs so I can't physically go play with one. Where should I buy from? Anywhere on line? (other than E-Bay).
