Macintosh Server G4 (QuickSilver)

Introduced: September 2001
Terminated: January 2002


The Macintosh Server G4 (QuickSilver) was housed in the same new case as the Power Mac G4 (QuickSilver).  There were two configurations available.  The low-end configuration ran at 733Mhz and had an 80Gb hard drive and 128Mb or RAM.  The high-end model ran dual 800Mhz processors and had a 72Gb hard drive.  Both had a CD-RW and an optional Zip 250 drive.


The new models featured a new and distinctive case, but the technical upgrades in this model were only minor over the previous Server G4.  Like all of the Macintosh Server G4s, the QuickSilver Server G4 was shipped with server software installed.

  • The Mac Server G4/733 (Quicksilver), in particular, is based on the Power Macintosh G4/733 (Quicksilver), but originally shipped with an unlimited user edition of MacOS X Server. car title loan
