Introducing a work of art and an unparalleled engineering accomplishment. With the Power Mac G4 Cube, Apple has concentrated the amazing power of the G4 processor into a stunning compact crystal cube that delivers maximum performance per cubic inch.

The PowerPC G4 processor with Velocity Engine puts supercomputer performance right on your desktop—just what you need to create high-end graphics, play today’s hottest games, and make your own digital video movies. The Power Mac G4 Cube comes with a powerful ATI RAGE 128 Pro card for stunning 2D and 3D graphics. For heart-thumping audio with your movies and games, we've included all-digital speakers with Harman Kardon audio technology.

Despite its power, the G4 Cube is amazingly unobtrusive. A revolutionary no-fan design makes it whisper quiet. The ingenious Apple Display Connector (ADC) reduces desktop clutter by putting power, video, and USB signals on a single, slim cable.

A computer as innovative as the G4 Cube demands monitors to match, so we offer three outstanding displays. All use the single-connection ADC for simple setup. The 17-inch (16-inch viewable) Apple Studio Display features a Natural Flat Diamondtron CRT that reduces glare and provides images of extraordinary sharpness. The 15-inch flat-panel Apple Studio Display features an amazing liquid crystal screen that delivers a pure digital image from the G4 Cube, with no image degradation and absolutely no flicker. And the 22-inch all-digital Apple Cinema Display—the largest LCD monitor available—gives you more than two pages of workspace and retains its brilliant colors over a wide range of viewing angles.

Just connect a DV camera, and the G4 Cube becomes the ultimate desktop movie studio. Apple iMovie software lets you capture and edit video, then enhance it with incredible-looking titles, transitions, soundtracks, and effects. Video professionals can add Apple’s award-winning Final Cut Pro software.

As you'd expect from Apple, the G4 Cube gives you lots of options for accessing the Internet. It has both an Ethernet port (great for connecting to a DSL or cable modem) and a 56K modem. Or add an AirPort Card and take advantage of Apple’s high-speed wireless technology to access the Internet from almost anywhere within a 150-foot radius of an AirPort Base Station.

The Power Mac G4 Cube. Apple redefines the desktop computer, again.
