Things to Remember when ordering a  Power Mac G4, Power Book G4, iMac, & iBook
These systems do not have a floppy drive, DIN-8 serial ports, LocalTalk ports, or SCSI ports.
  • If you need a floppy drive it is recommend that you purchase the Imation SuperDisk with USB port. The drive retails for around $150 and will let you use 1.4MB floppies as well as 120MB SuperDisk.
  • If you need DIN-8 and/or LocalTalk ports please consult with Information Services as solutions are device dependent.
  • For SCSI (it is used in many scanners & external disk drives, for example) in a G4 it is recommended that you purchase the SCSI option when you are configuring the system or use a USB Scanner. If you need SCSI after purchasing a blue G3 we recommend the Adaptec 2906 for around $80.00. There is no SCSI solution for the iMac or the iBook.
