Apple Xserve any use?


#1

Message from Oldham Youth Council

just having a sort out and found an Apple Xserve. Not sure it has ever been used but definitely not since 2011. Would it be any use at the hack space?

would appear to be a powerpc cpu G4 - not sure on compatibility or speed however apple stuff does have a long shelf life


#3

My initial feeling is that they are a little old and most likely will not be used. Wiki doesn’t list very good specs


#4

Entirely dependent on which gen of xserve - however even the latest is nearly a decade old so I suggest we thank them for the offer but turn it down to avoid unnecessary junk


#5

Where are youth council based - if possible might pop up and have a look at them save us carting the down if they are no good
