PowerMac G5

Welcome to G5 Center!

The Power Mac G5 was one of the last PowerPC machines Apple produced and sold. It remains a capable computer today. This website is dedicated to the venerable machine, providing users with information on available hardware and software choices for their G5.

Welcome & Where to Start

Did you just pick up a Power Mac G5 via eBay, CraigsList, or locally? Are you interested in souping up that old G5 sitting in your garage? Do you need to squeeze more life out of your office or home G5?

The apps linked under our nifty categories above are sort of curated by me and, in some cases, from other great blogs. These apps do not represent an objective "best of" but should be taken as a starting point to find what works best for you.

If you need a place to begin, check out the Hardware page and then proceed to the System page to get your machine up and running quickly.

G5 Center Blog Notes, updates, and thoughts about our G5s

Coming Soon

Published on December 17, 2015

I just got through a move to my new place of residence, so the G5 is currently disconnected, lying in bits and pieces in the basement. When I get it set back up, I'll work on some juicy material for you.

What's on tap?

Before Christmas, I am aiming to do a little walkthrough of some remote connection options for your G5. For example, how do you setup screen sharing, your own VNC server, telnet, etc? I'll probably do them in bits and pieces though, rather than one big messy article.

Stay tuned.
