I'm sure it WAS. However if it did not have any of those things, is it
worth buying them NOW? Here it might be because people still ask insane
prices for G4's. In most of the world you can buy the G4 version of
the same machine, or one even faster for the cost of any one of those

I just don't think it's worth putting any money into NOW.
