Mac computer

Hi, not really sure if anybody can help me, but here is my question. A friend of mine at work wants to sell the family computer. His girls are grown and out of the house now, and he doesnt use it. He said it was a 5000 once, and then he said 5L39. He really doesnt know. What would this be, and what would it be worth? Liker I said, I dont have much information, so Im not sure if anyone can help me. I am a windows man, but I have heard so much about mac computers, that I thought it might be worth looking into. Thanks

Re: Mac computer

Sounds like one of the early PowerMacs that came out around the mid 1990s and roughly equivelent to windows pcs at that time (first pentium systems 100mhz) I am unsure of that specific model though... if it still works it may be of interest to a geeky collector perhaps.

I've had macs since 1986 and have never heard of 5L39. I would try to find out what model it is for sure.

Re: Mac computer models

If you decide to check the model, here is a site that can help.
http://www.apple-history.com/

It lists all Apple computers (by date, family, or processor)---click on any model and you will get all the specs

Re: Mac computer

4-5 years old should be a powermac g4....probably between 300-500mhz im assuming. Might be a good deal to pick it up. I recently picked up a powermac g4 DP 450 that screamed along just fine. 5l39 sounds like the start or the serial number or something...yeah, let us know please
