Is there a place I can buy a PowerPC system? I would like to try out PowerPC with various OS, but I have no clue as to where I can get one, that is why I am so eager about the ARM based netbooks.

If you do not mind building your own system, you could buy an Efika mainboard ($99), case + PSU ($99) and a low-profile graphics card ($39) at the Directron website.

For a pre-assembled system, you might want to contact AusPPC (google the name).

If you do not mind using a second-hand system, you should consider buying a MacMini with G4 processor (and preferrably 64MB of graphics memory). MorphOS should become available for this platform in the forseeable future. If you do not like to wait, you could hunt for a Pegasos mainboard / system at the usual places (ebay, et al).
