Apple Mac Server G4 MDD

The Apple Mac Server G4/1.0 DP MDD, dubbed the "Mirrored Drive Doors" or "Wind Tunnel" model(s) and based on the architecture used by the Xserve, features dual 1.0 GHz PowerPC 7455 (G4) processors, both with AltiVec "Velocity Engine" vector processing units, 256k level 2 on-chip caches and 1 MB level 3 backside caches. In addition, this model ships with 256 MB of PC2700 DDR SDRAM, a 120.0 GB (7200 RPM) Ultra ATA/100 hard drive, an 8X/16X/10X/32X DVD-ROM/CD-RW Combo Drive, a NVIDIA GeForce4 MX (AGP 4X) video card with 32 MB of DDR SDRAM (?), a digital audio sound system with a highly-efficient Tripath "Class T" amplifier, and a pre-installed copy of MacOS X Server. The case is similar to earlier Mac Server G4 models, and has the same fold down door on the side that makes upgrading very easy, but also sports decorative indentions on the front reminiscent of the "Ventiports" on a 1949 Buick Roadmaster and two "mirrored finish" external drive bays. This model ships with the Apple "Pro" keyboard and optical mouse. Custom configurations were also available.
