I doubt any will.

G4 1st gens can't use SATA.

Good call. However I think a new Mac mini would be better at the price.

Some aren't too expensive (for ssd of course) if you can find them stock somewhere.

The real question I guess is why put such a fast, expensive and low capacity in a computer like a mini G4? I'm not saying it isn't a good idea, I just can't find a situation where the disk woouldn't be bottlenecked by something else.

And in that case, you're right amdfangirl, might as well upgrade the whole thing.

@DamianVonBarone: So... why? I'm curious.

If anything, the SSD would be bottlenecked by the I/O controller and the IDE or whatever the Mac Mini uses (well, if SSDs can saturate 3Gb/s Sata...)
