I went to grab a new G4 powerbook, but after picking one out the "genius" at the Mac Store told me that it could not run Classic. At first I assumed he meant that it could not boot in classic, but he said no, the new systems cannot even run "classic mode". I personally found this hard to believe, and have yet to find anyone else tell me this is the case. Sad to say it would be far from the first time one of these so called Genius's didn't know what they were talking about. However, I want to make sure b/c I need to run some classic apps, and will have to dig up a reconditioned system if this is the case.
