I would guess a large percentage of MacPorts users have 4, 5, 10 or
more machines at any given time so likely some 5+ year old machines,
likely G4's and G5's.
A dimension of ROI is almost always time.
I have a PPC G5 under management that is processing hundreds of online
manufacturing orders per week and I expect it to remain in service for
a couple more years.
