Uh. Yeah. That's kind of the question, eh? What model(s)? How much
RAM and disk? What exact OS versions? etc. I know zip about Macs.

If I had horizontal space for one, yeah -- but it would be a lot
easier to stuff a short tower somewhere, if it'd use my existing
(but non-USB) KVM setup ...

Do tower Macs have mini-DIN mouse/keyboard connectors? 15-pin VGA
video out? Are there any on-line resources on Mac configurations
that address the needs of the truly ignorant? :-)
